"Early American Guitars: The Instruments of C.F. Martin”

Things to Do, Museums & Attractions

With all due respect to Les Paul, few names loom larger in American luthier lore than Christian Frederick Martin. The German immigrant crossed the Atlantic in the 1830s and began fashioning six-strings in the Spanish style (figure-eights with super pretty...

"El Greco in New York"

Painting, Masterpiece

  • $$
  • Critics' pick

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of El Greco (1541–1614), surely one of the most popular of the Old Masters, not only due to the devotional nature of his work, but also because much of it anticipated modern Expressionism (or, more accurately,...

"Madame Cézanne"

Painting, Masterpiece

  • Critics' pick

Although Paul Cézanne’s wife was his most frequently painted subject, she’s been given short shrift by art historians, who have tended to focus on the artist’s still lifes, landscapes and figurative studies of bathers. As a remedy, the Met gathers paintings,...

"Bartholomeus Spranger: Splendor and Eroticism in Imperial Prague"

Painting, Masterpiece

  • $$
  • Critics' pick

As Old Masters go, Spranger (1546–1611) is not terribly well-known, but the force of his work as court painter to popes, cardinals and Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II is undeniable, as is the sexual undercurrent of his nude subjects.

"Thomas Struth: Photographs"

Photography

  • $$
  • Critics' pick

These 25 photos by Struth, dating from 1978 to the present, are exemplary of the German artist's panoramic, empirical treatment of subjects, which range here from deserted New York streets to a robotically assisted surgery in progress.
