The Metropolitan Museum Journal presents richly illustrated studies of works in the Museum's collection, including prominent as well as lesser known pieces, and relating them to works in other collections. Reflecting the breadth and depth of the Museum's encyclopedic holdings, this annual publication contains first-time investigations and critical reassessments of individual works; monographic surveys relating objects to their cultural contexts; new information drawing on archival research and technical analyses, and other scholarly articles.
