The Met  The Met presents over 5,000 years of art from every corner of the world. Posts by Kimberly Drew (@museummammy), Social Media Manager.


Organized to commemorate the centennial of World War I, the exhibition “World War I and the Visual Arts” focuses on the impact of the war on the visual arts. In a recent blog post, Jennifer Farrell, the exhibition’s curator explains: “artists searched for an appropriate language to express the chaos and carnage that resulted from modern industrial warfare, reevaluating subject matter, techniques, materials, and styles, as well as their positions and responsibilities as cultural producers.” See “World War I and the Visual Arts” before January 7 at The Met Fifth Avenue. Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen (French (born Switzerland), 1859–1923). Mobilization or La Marseillaise (detail), 1915 #TheMet #WWI

Happy birthday to Childe Hassam, a pioneer of American Impressionism and perhaps its most devoted, prolific, and successful practitioner.

The Water Garden (detail), 1909. #TheMet #ChildeHassam #Impressionism

In honor of #LGBTHistoryMonth, we've invited activist and writer @AdamEli to share a selection of artworks in the Museum’s collection that were made by artists who self-identify as queer or represent queer subjects. From Adam: “I want to start by asking what makes a work of art queer, or representative of queer history? Does an artist being gay, like Charles Demuth, make their work part of the queer canon? Or, does a piece of art have to depict, or hint at, a same sex relationship like Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s "The Sofa”? Queer history is broad. The harder we look the more we will find. I am excited to show you what I’ve found in my research of The Met’s collection.” Charles Demuth (American, 1883–1935). I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold, 1928 and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864–1901). The Sofa (detail), ca. 1894–96 #TheMet #CharlesDemuth #ToulouseLautrec

"Singh gives us photographs charged with life: not only beautiful experiences or painful scenes but also those in-between moments of drift that make up most of our days.” —Teju Cole.
