Free – Download more than 300 Met Museum catalogues

October 14, 2012

One of more than 300 Metropolitan Museum of Art catalogues now available free online.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has just made more than 300 catalogues available as free downloads, and has made hundreds more available for reading online in part or in their entirety.  As reported on ArtDaily and elsewhere:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art today launched MetPublications, a major online resource that offers unparalleled in-depth access to the Museum’s renowned print and online publications, covering art, art history, archaeology, conservation, and collecting. Beginning with nearly 650 titles published from 1964 to the present, this new addition to the Met’s Web site, will continue to expand and could eventually offer access to nearly all books, Bulletins, and Journals published by the Metropolitan Museum since its founding in 1870, as well as online publications.

Some of my personal favorites that can be downloaded include Egyptian Art in the Age of the PyramidsThe Glory of Byzantium: Art and Culture of the Middle Byzantine Era, A.D. 843–1261Hudson River School Visions: The Landscapes of Sanford R. GiffordJusepe de Ribera, 1591–1652Orazio and Artemisia Gentileschi, and Painting in Renaissance Siena, 1420–1500.

You no longer need to worry about shelf space – you just need room on your computer. Thank you Met!
