Dear Members and Friends,
September Programs • 11
This season’s offerings encapsulate what has become for me a favorite way of thinking about the Museum: “One Met. Many Worlds”— a place where you can journey through the world’s great art and many cultures. Balthus: Cats and Girls—Paintings and Provocations, for example, is the first American exhibition of the artist’s work in almost 30 years. It focuses on his fascination with felines and the transition between childhood and adolescence—subjects of his paintings from the mid-1930s to the 1950s. Interwoven Globe: The Worldwide Textile Trade, 1500– 1800 tells the important story of the flowering of an abundant textile trade, with its many breathtaking designs and techniques. Silla: Korea’s Golden Kingdom introduces the fascinating and complex culture of ancient Korea. Many of the works on view, including spectacular gold regalia and exquisite Buddhist art, are being shown in the U.S. for the first time. The story of the modernization of the ancient tradition of glass blowing is told in Venetian Glass by Carlo Scarpa: The Venini Company, 1932–1947. Scarpa was an influential architect who also collaborated with master glass blowers to create many new styles and in the process pioneered techniques, silhouettes, and colors. A superb sense of color and craftsmanship is also on view in Jewels by JAR. With more than 300 pieces by the acclaimed jewelry designer Joel A. Rosenthal, it is the first retrospective of his work in America. The Met is also home this season to a stunning selection of medieval church treasures from Hildesheim Cathedral. The works represent one of the most complete surviving ensembles of church furnishings in Europe and include many masterpieces. Providing a wonderful complement as only the Met can is Janet Cardiff: The Forty Part Motet, a sound installation at the Museum’s Cloisters branch for medieval art and architecture. By Canadian artist Cardiff (b. 1957), it is the first presentation of contemporary art at The Cloisters and part of a year-long celebration of its 75th anniversary. It’s an exciting fall. Come visit soon—to explore, be challenged, or view old favorites.

Exhibitions and The Collection
Interwoven Globe: The Worldwide Textile Trade, 1500–1800 September 16, 2013–January 5, 2014 The Tisch Galleries, 2nd floor
With works from across the Museum as well as international loans, Interwoven Globe: The Worldwide Textile Trade, 1500– 1800 highlights an important design story
that has never been told from a truly global perspective. The golden age of European navigation in search of spice routes to the east brought about the flowering of an abundant textile trade. Textiles often acted as direct currency for spices and other desired goods. During this period, textiles and textile designs made their way throughout the globe. Because trade textiles blended the traditional patterns and skills of the cultures that produced them, and reflected the tastes of the countries that received them, the result was objects that are both beautiful and historically fascinating. Made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Diane W. and James E. Burke Fund, The Coby Foundation, Ltd., The Favrot Fund, the Gail and Parker Gilbert Fund, and the Quinque Foundation.

Janet Cardiff at The Cloisters September 10–December 8, 2013 The Cloisters Fuentidueña Chapel
Janet Cardiff: The Forty Part Motet, featuring a 2001 sound installation by Canadian artist Cardiff (born 1957), is the fi rst presentation of contemporary art at The Cloisters. Regarded as the artist’s masterwork, and consisting of 40 high-fidelity speakers positioned on stands in an oval configuration throughout the acoustically superb Fuentidueña Chapel, the 14-minute piece continuously plays an 11-minute reworking of the 40-part motet Spem in alium numquam habui Left: Janet Cardiff, The Forty Part Motet (2001).

Exhibitions and The Collection
Medieval Treasures from Hildesheim September 17, 2013–January 5, 2014 Wrightsman Exhibition Gallery, European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, 1st floor
Designated a UNESCO world cultural heritage site in 1985, Hildesheim Cathedral has one of the most complete surviving ensembles of church furnishings and treasures in Europe, with many masterpieces made between 1000 and 1250. A major renovation of the cathedral provides an opportunity for an extraordinary exhibition of medieval church treasures. The first section focuses primarily on Bishop Bernward of Hildesheim (960–1022), one of the greatest patrons of the arts in the Middle Ages. In addition to the famous monumental bronze doors and the column in Hildesheim Cathedral that cannot travel, Bernward commissioned many precious works of art, among them the Golden Madonna, a silver crucifix and candlesticks, and numerous illuminated manuscripts, which will be part of the exhibition. Made possible by the Michel David-Weill Fund. Supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

Balthus: Cats and Girls—Paintings and Provocations September 25, 2013–January 12, 2014 Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall, 2nd floor
Balthus is best known for his series of pensive adolescents who while away their time in rooms closed to the outside world. Cats are usually their sole playmates. Focusing on the artist’s finest works, this exhibition includes paintings dating from the mid-1930s to the 1950s. Between 1936 and 1939 Balthus painted his celebrated series of portraits of Thérèse Blanchard—his young neighbor in Paris—alone, with her cat, or with her two brothers. In Switzerland during World War II, he replaced the austerity of his Paris studio with more colorful interiors in which different girls daydream, read, or nap. The exhibition concludes with images he created of Frédérique Tison, his favorite model during the 1950s. Never before shown in public are the series of 40 small ink drawings for

Exhibitions and The Collection
Silla: Korea’s Golden Kingdom November 4, 2013–February 23, 2014 Special Exhibition Gallery 199, 1st floor
The fi rst exhibition in the West to focus exclusively on the art of the fascinating Korean kingdom of Silla, this show presents spectacular gold regalia, exquisite Buddhist sculpture, and exotic goods from the Silk Road, all created between 400 and 800 A.D. It traces Silla’s rise from a small polity to a cosmopolitan presence both on the peninsula and in a broader Eurasian context. Drawn from the holdings of the National Museums of Korea in Seoul and Gyeongju, the 100 objects include National Treasures and works never before shown in the United States. Made possible by Samsung. Additional support provided by the Korea Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Museum of Korea and Gyeongju National Museum, Korea.

Venetian Glass by Carlo Scarpa: The Venini Company, 1932–1947 November 5, 2013–March 2, 2014 Robert Lehman Wing, ground floor
This exhibition is devoted to the work in glass of the influential Italian architect Carlo Scarpa (1906–1978), whose abilities can be traced to an earlier stage in his career. In 1932 Scarpa was hired by Paolo Venini, founder of Venini Glassworks, to be an artistic consultant to the company. 6 | www.metmuseum.org
Until 1947, he worked closely with Venini master glass blowers and Mr. Venini himself to create over two dozen styles, in the process pioneering techniques, silhouettes, and colors that thoroughly modernized the ancient tradition of glass blowing. Presented here are the results of this unique collaboration, featuring nearly 300 carefully selected works that highlight the significant contribution that Scarpa made to the art of Venetian glass. Made possible in part by the Jane and Robert Carroll Fund.

With more than 300 pieces by the most acclaimed jewelry designer of the last 35 years—Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR—this exhibition is the fi rst retrospective in America of his work. Born in New York and educated at Harvard, Rosenthal moved to Paris soon after his graduation in 1966 and began experimenting with jewelry making, eventually opening JAR in 1978 on the Place de Vendôme, the same space he occupies today. His works quickly became known for their unique Butterfly earrings, 1993, by JAR, rubies, blue and violet sapphires; amethysts and diamonds; silver and gold Four butterfly brooches, 1991, by JAR, rubies, sapphires, amethysts, tourmalines, citrines, aquamarines, garnets, and brown and white diamonds; silver and gold
New European Paintings Galleries, 1250–1800 Now Open 2nd floor
The Met’s world-renowned collection of European Old Master paintings from the 13th through the early 19th century have reopened after an extensive renovation and reinstallation. This is the fi rst major renovation of the galleries since 1951 and the fi rst overall reinstallation of the collection
since 1972. Almost one third larger, the space now accommodates the display of more than 700 paintings in 45 galleries, including a rotating special exhibition gallery. The galleries are organized both chronologically and geographically to provide an overview of painting in Italy, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Great Britain. The suites of galleries unfold with a new logic and grandeur, and sculpture, medals, ceramics, and other decorative arts have been judiciously incorporated where their presence adds a layer of meaning to the display of paintings. Key works have been conserved or embellished with period frames. Important loans complement the permanent collection and celebrate the reinstallation.

Exhibitions and The Collection
Artists and Amateurs: Etching in Eighteenth-Century France October 1, 2013–January 5, 2014 Drawings and Prints, 2nd fl oor
Featuring works by Watteau, Boucher, Fragonard, Hubert Robert, and many others, Artists and Amateurs embarks on a fresh exploration of how etching flourished in ancien régime France, shedding new light on artistic practice and patronage at that time. Treating such topics as technique and practice, experimentation, the influence of Italy, and the crucial role of the amateur, the exhibition establishes the unique place of etching in the shifting social terrain of 18th-century Paris, and explores an artistic context in which conventional hierarchies of genre and medium were increasingly breached to brilliant effect. Made possible by The Schiff Foundation. Study of Thirteen Heads, 1770, by Jean Jacques de Boissieu, etching; second state of three. The Elisha Whittelsey Collection, The Elisha Whittelsey Fund, 1967 (67.793.25)

Feathered Hanging, 7th–10th century, feathers on cotton, camelid fiber. The Michael C. Rockefeller Memorial Collection, Bequest of Nelson A. Rockefeller, 1979 (1979.206.470)
Among the most spectacular and unusual works created by ancient Peruvian textile artists are panels—probably hangings— completely covered in a bold quadrant pattern of vibrant blue and yellow macaw feathers. Made by the Wari peoples of southern Peru between the 7th and 10th centuries, the panels, averaging seven feet by two, display a strikingly contemporary aesthetic; they may have been displayed on special occasions on the stone walls of Wari structures, imbuing 8 | www.metmuseum.org

The Museum continues a long-standing holiday tradition with the annual presentation of its Christmas tree, a favorite of New Yorkers and visitors from around the world. A vivid 18th-century Neapolitan Nativity scene, embellished with a profuse array of diminutive, lifelike attendant figures and silk-robed angels hovering above, adorns the candlelit spruce. Recorded music and lighting ceremonies add to the enjoyment of the holiday display. Made possible by gifts to The Christmas Tree Fund and the Loretta Hines Howard Fund.

Made possible by The Hagop Kevorkian Fund.
The Roof Garden Commission: Imran Qureshi Through November 3, 2013 The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden
Imran Qureshi (b. 1972, Hyderabad, Pakistan) is renowned for his reinterpretations of traditional miniature painting that first flourished in the Mughal courts of the Indian Subcontinent at the end of the 16th century. He is equally adept at creating large-scale environments in which foliate motifs sourced from miniature landscapes transform the site. Qureshi’s commission is complemented by a new installation of his small-scale paintings in The Gioconda and Joseph King Gallery (916), hung together with historic miniatures from the Museum’s collection. Made possible by Bloomberg. Additional support provided by Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky. Installation view of And How Many Rains Must Fall Before the Stains Are Washed Clean (2013)
Julia Margaret Cameron August 19, 2013–January 5, 2014 The Howard Gilman Gallery, Photographs, 2nd floor
One of the greatest portraitists in the history of photography, Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–1879) blended an unorthodox technique, a deeply spiritual sensibility, and a Pre-Raphaelite–inflected aesthetic to create vivid portraits and a mirror of the Victorian soul. This is the fi rst New York museum show devoted to her work in nearly a generation and the fi rst ever at the Met. Its 35 works are drawn entirely from the Museum’s collection, including major works from the Rubel Collection acquired in 1997 and the Gilman Collection acquired in 2005. Made possible by The Hite Foundation, in memory of Sybil Hite. Mrs. Herbert Duckworth, 1867, by Julia Margaret Cameron, albumen silver print from glass negative.

Small Delights: Chinese Snuff Bottles Through February 17, 2014
Through January 12, 2014
Charlotte C. Weber Galleries for the Arts of Ancient China, 2nd floor
Arts of Japan Galleries, 2nd floor
Snuff bottles hold a unique place in the history of Chinese art. Their broad range of materials, techniques, and artistic styles represent almost every art form developed during the five millennia of Chinese civilization, including stone, porcelain, ivory, lacquer, metalwork, glass, and even painting and calligraphy. This exhibition, drawn entirely from the Museum’s collection, features many works that have not been shown in decades. These exquisite miniatures not only illustrate the technical virtuosity and artistic sensibility of the craftsmen, but also provide a window on life in late imperial China.
This installation focuses on premodern Japanese works that were inspired by classical Chinese or Japanese literature. Included are ink landscapes and calligraphy created in the context of medieval Zen monasteries, as well as works that draw inspiration from ancient Heian court culture. Other highlights include screen paintings, deluxe lacquerware and textiles, and a selection of contemporary prints and calligraphy.
