Rendez-vous with Art


Co-authored with Philippe de Montebello, Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for 31 years to 2008, this book discusses how we experience art, how we look at it, and how we think about it. It is structured around the conversation the authors had while visiting some of the best-known museums in the world, including the Louvre, the Prado and the Palazzo Pitti. The result is highly unusual and very personal: a book about the experience of visiting a museum or art gallery.
