Overview

The Cloisters is the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. This splendid new guide, richly illustrated with more than 175 color pictures, offers a broad introduction to the remarkable history of The Cloisters as well as a lively and informative discussion of the treasures within.

Assembled with Romanesque and Gothic architectural elements dating from the twelfth through the fifteenth century, The Cloisters is itself a New York City landmark, overlooking sweeping vistas of the Hudson River in Upper Manhattan. Long cherished as a world-class museum, it also contains beautiful gardens featuring plants, fruit trees, and useful herbs familiar from the collection’s medieval tapestries and other works of art. Among the masterworks of medieval religious and domestic life housed in The Cloisters are exceptional examples of carved ivory, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, silver- and goldsmiths’ work, and tapestries, including the famous Unicorn in Captivity.

Enriched by the latest scholarship from The Cloisters’ expert staff of curators, educators, and horticulturalists, this volume will stand as the definitive source on the collection for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
On the northern tip of Manhattan island sits a unique collection of art and architecture: the Cloisters, a 68-year-old branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art that displays more than 5000 artifacts from the Romanesque and Gothic periods. This book, edited by Cloisters curator Barnet and museum educator Wu, serves as a descriptive guide to 127 of the key objects and architectural fragments that make up the core of the collection. After opening with a brief history of the collection's origin, the book lists each object's original date and provenance, its size, and the date it was added to the collection. The artwork is beautifully conveyed through 160 full-color photographs, and an additional 18 black-and-white illustrations depict select artifacts in their original settings. Included are a map of the Cloisters indicating the location of key architectural features, a glossary, and lists of both suggested readings and selected references. The endpapers provide a floor plan and location indicator of artifacts within the collection. Highly recommended for collections focusing on medieval studies, architecture, and decorative arts.-Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ.
