Chag Sameach to all who celebrate Passover ✨⁣

In medieval Spain, the Hebrew Bible was referred to as the "Sanctuary of God," and many were splendidly adorned, like this special manuscript at The Met Cloisters—one of only three surviving embellished Hebrew Bibles from 14th-century Castile. ⁣

The script was lovingly and painstakingly copied out by an anonymous scribe and one or two masorators, responsible for the micrography (meaning "tiny writing"). With almost inconceivable complexity, the lettering is executed perfectly.

The illuminations of the first pages are created in the Gothic style associated with Christian art, while the intricate geometric patterns of the last pages resemble the conventions of Islamic art. This mixture of styles was not at all unusual in the medieval Iberian Peninsula, where Christians, Muslims, and Jews lived side-by-side and shared artistic ideas. ⁣

If you've already seen this on view at The Met Cloisters, stop by again—every four months, the manuscript pages are turned to minimize light exposure. With more than 1,000 pages, you're sure to get a new look with each visit.

See this beautiful manuscript on view at The Met Cloisters in Gallery ⁣14.

🎨 Unidentified artist (Spanish). Hebrew Bible, 1300-1350. Ink, tempera, and gold on parchment; leather binding.

How do the values of early Buddhism offer insight into contemporary climate concerns? ⁣

This , read along as The Met's Savita Monie writes, "These Buddhist teachings offer a way to address our most pressing climate concerns. These ideals are:⁣

🌏 a world of dharma, signified by the wheel (chakra), where the natural laws of the universe are respected as truths, and therefore our forests and oceans are to be protected rather than exploited for short-term gains; ⁣

🌏 a world of sangha, where communities of like-minded individuals come together around a common cause, such as safeguarding our climate; ⁣

🌏 a world of sambhandhan, where interconnectedness is an imperative that drives climate diplomacy among nations and other groups; ⁣

🌏 a world of smriti, where each individual is mindful of their own actions and how they affect the environment; ⁣and

🌏 a world of ahimsa, where nonviolence and compassion play key roles, so that those with the least power, whether humans or animals, are respected and factored into the solutions."⁣

Before ascending to the heavens, this glass of whiskey toured the world 🥃✨🌹

Meticulously staged by the pioneering color photographer Anton Breuhl, this photograph was featured in the pages of LIFE and Newsweek. Breuhl conjured worldly associations for his client, the Kentucky distiller Four Roses.

Against all odds, these eye-catching scenarios were not darkroom fabrications—Bruehl built them by hand, with the help of miniaturists, set dressers, and a celebrity florist.

Testing appetites for novelty, illusion, and abundance—all standbys of 20th-century advertising—he wagered that this crisp visual construction would satisfy your thirst, then melt into hot air.

Check out this photograph on view in the exhibition "The Real Thing: Unpackaging Product Photography," now through August 4.⁣

Eid Mubarak to all who celebrate! 💫

In honor of Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, contemplate this refined Qur'an manuscript from Kashmir.

Lavishly illuminated and bound in a gilded leather binding, this late 18th- to early 19th-century Qur'an is typical of devotional manuscripts from Kashmir in northern India.

Notable for its fine illumination and outstanding calligraphy, it contains the distinctive Kashmiri-style gold and blue illumination within a broad frame overlaid by a protruding, lobed clover-like composition with interlace, which extends into the margins of the page.

This noteworthy design is used for the double pages inserted at the beginning of each of the eight Suras: al-Fatiha, al-Ma’ida, Yunus, Isra’, al-Shu‘ara, Qaf, al-Falaq, and al-Nas. The fine naskhi script is consistent in quality and evenness throughout the manuscript. The text also contains Persian interlinear translations in red nasta‘liq.

An eye for an eye 🍋 👁️ ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This fall over two visits to The Met Cloisters, fourth grade students from P.S. 48 PO Michael J. Buczek here in New York City explored griffins, dragons, unicorns, and other mythical beasts in medieval art—and how these creatures inspired, and continue to inspire, creative storytelling.⁣

Back in the classroom, the students designed their own imagined creatures, combining elements of real and mythical animals to create beasts fearsome, ferocious, kind, and cute. ⁣

These engaging artworks were on display this January in the exhibition, “A Magical Menagerie: Exploring Dragons, Griffins, Unicorns, and More.” ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
A few weeks after the close of the exhibition, Met staff member London Long-Wheeler was inspired by fourth grader Arthur Rojas’ “Lemon Creature” and crocheted this adorable critter. Life sometimes imitates art!⁣⁣

Huge thanks to all the teachers and students who shared their amazing talents with The Met Cloisters! ❤️ What’s your favorite mythical creature?

"Where always it’s Spring and everyone’s in love and flowers pick themselves"
— E.E. Cummings 🌹

Spanish artist Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta was famous during his lifetime, painting portraits for wealthy French, American, British, and Argentine patrons. He was also known for his skillful and often flirtatious genre scenes, such as this painting, "Masqueraders."

In this scene, a couple dressed in extravagant costumes share drinks in a quiet conservatory after a ball. Leaning over across the table, a man gazes at a coquettish blonde woman whose face is hidden behind a black mask. She drapes her fingers across her chest, one of many gestures and details in the painting that Madrazo uses to evoke a playfully suggestive subject.

The artist further entices the viewer with his beautiful painterly effects seen in the way that he conveys extraordinary material—satin, fur, porcelain, glass, feather, and velvet, all bathed in light.

🎨 Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta (Spanish,1841–1920). Masqueraders, 1875–78. Oil on canvas.

In 1917, The Met purchased this portrait of a young woman artist for $200,000. At the time, it was thought to be painted by the male Neoclassical artist, Jacques-Louis David—but more than half a century later, when art historian Margaret Oppenheimer reevaluated that attribution, she made a surprising discovery.

We remember the artist Richard Serra, who passed away this week at the age of 85.⁣

Long regarded as one of the leading American sculptors of the postwar period, Serra began his career in the 1960s experimenting with lead or found materials often scavenged from Lower Manhattan. ⁣

He is perhaps best known, though, for sculptures he produced starting in the 1990s: large-scale steel installations that shaped space. Serra was determined for his work to simultaneously generate the creation of new forms and new physical experiences.⁣

Distinct but closely related to his sculpture making, Serra had an equally ambitious drawing practice. In 2011, The Met presented “Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective” organized by the The Menil Collection and the SFMOMA San Francisco Museum of Modern Art—the first comprehensive survey of his drawing practice, highlighting his myriad strategies, from process-based material experiments to more provisional notebook sketches. ⁣

“Richard Serra Drawing” allowed this critical aspect of his career to be understood on its own terms, separate from sculpture, while simultaneously highlighting the deep interconnection between the two practices—inherently demonstrating his own belief that “Work comes out of work.” ⁣

Controversial opinion: Our favorite bed is a flower bed 🌷

Did you know there are three unique gardens within the walls of The Met Cloisters?

Planted in reconstructed Romanesque and Gothic cloisters (from the Latin for "enclosure"), The Met Cloisters gardens evoke green spaces that provided sustenance and spiritual refreshment within medieval monasteries.

Designed as an integral feature of the Museum, the gardens enhance both our understanding of medieval life and the setting in which the Cloisters collection of medieval art is displayed.
