About this book

100 Best Paintings in New York combines art history, commentary, and tourists' guide to provide you with a deeper understanding and appreciation of New York's greatest works of art.

The descriptions draw attention to fascinating details in each work and look at why, where, or for what occasion they were painted. A biographical chronology of each artist accompanies the essays as well as a sample listing of works by other contemporary painters. From Jan van Eyck to Mark Rothko, from Diego Velazquez to Georgia O'Keefe, 100 Best Paintings in New York covers the complete spectrum of masterpieces in New York's great galleries.

100 Best Paintings in New York will inform and amuse both visitors and residents who wish to make the most of what their city has to offer. This accessible - and occasionally irreverent - guide has been written with both novice and veteran museum-goers in mind.

Contains descriptions of works displayed in: the Brooklyn Museum · the Cloisters · the Frick Collection · the Hispanic Society of America · Metropolitan Museum of Art · MOMA · Neue Gallerie · the Guggenheim Museum · Whitney Museum of American Art

Reviews

“The perfect companion for the museum visitor in New York. This is the only book to provide an introduction in one volume to some of the most important paintings in the city’s public museums and galleries. Each of the one hundred well-chosen paintings is reproduced in full color and complemented by analysis that covers why, how, and where the work was painted. In accessible- at times irreverent- language, opinionated guides Deanna MacDonald and Geoff Smith also offer information on how to view and understand a painting.” – Antiques & Fine Art
