This spiral-bound weekly desk diary is filled with evocative photographs and paintings of New York City from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
New York City is defined by its soaring skyscrapers and broad bridges. But it’s also represented by modest scenes of quiet backyards and placid parks. This weekly engagement calendar from The Met showcases Gotham and all its splendor in paintings, photographs, and prints, all from the Museum’s collection.
Here are John Marin’s dynamic view of Times Square and Romare Bearden’s striking scene of Harlem; Childe Hassam’s Impressionist aerial image of flags waving on Fifth Avenue and Georgia O’Keeffe’s dramatic view of the East River. From the tip of Liberty’s torch to a crowded subway train, every week offers a new sight to enjoy as you keep track of appointments and occasions.
