Download Hundreds of Free Art Catalogs from The Metropolitan Museum of Art
From Open Culture, 22 October 2012:
Earlier this year, the Guggenheim Museum put online 65 modern art books, giving you free access to books introducing the work of Alexander Calder, Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele, and Kandinsky. Now, just a few short months later, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has launched MetPublications, a portal that will “eventually offer access to nearly all books, Bulletins, and Journals” published by the Met since 1870.
Of the many resources you can explore, here’s one obvious highlight: MetPublications now makes available 370 out-of-print titles, including lots of informative and visually-packed art catalogs from the museum’s past exhibitions.
