Paintings in the Met

  1. Self-portrait

    Rembrandt (1606–1669) painted a self portrait each decade of his career. In this moving study from 1660, when he was 54, he portrayed age very honestly.

  2. View of Toledo

    Darkening clouds set an eerie mood for one of El Greco’s (1541–1614) most memorable paintings, depicting the capital city of the Spanish empire until 1561.

  3. Young Woman with a Water Pitcher

    Painted between 1660 and 1667, this is a classic example of the subtle and sensitive use of light that has made Vermeer (1632–75) one of the most revered Dutch masters.

  4. The Harvesters

    One of five remaining panels of the months of the year, painted in the 1500s, this is Bruegel (1551–1569) at his realistic best, an example of the use of light and detail that set him apart.

  5. Madame X

    Part of the excellent American art collection, this canvas by John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) is of an American woman who married a French banker, becoming a notorious Paris beauty in the 1880s.

  6. Garden at Sainte-Adresse

    This resort town on the English Channel where Monet spent the summer of 1867 is portrayed with sparkling color and intricate brushwork. The work combines illusion and reality, showing why Monet (1840–1926) was considered one of the greatest Impressionists.

  7. Gertrude Stein

    This portrait, created when Picasso (1881–1973) was 24 years old shows the influence of African sculpture and a shift from the slender figures of his early years to Cubist forms.

  8. The Card Players

    Better known for landscapes and still lifes, Cézanne (1839–1906) was intrigued by a scene of peasants intent on their card game. This ambitious project emphasizes the somber concentration of the participants.

  9. Cypresses

    Painted in 1889, soon after Van Gogh’s (1853–90) voluntary confinement at an asylum in Saint-Remy, it shows the swirling and heavy brushwork typical of his work from this period.

    Cypresses, 1889
  10. Autumn Rhythm

    This work by Jackson Pollock (1912–1956), the Abstract Expressionist famous for his drip paintings, is part of the Met’s modern collection.


The Cloisters

In addition to the medieval treasures in the main building, the Metropolitan oversees a spectacular branch, The Cloisters, built in medieval architectural style and set on four acres of land overlooking the Hudson River in Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan. Opened in 1938, the complex consists of elements from five medieval cloisters and other monastic sites in southern France. The collections are noted for Romanesque and Gothic architectural sculptures and include illuminated manuscripts, tapestries, stained glass, enamels, ivories, and paintings. The Cloisters’ gardens are a serene escape from the city. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who gave items from his own collection, is largely responsible for funding the grounds, building, and collections.
