THE ARTIST PROJECT: What Artists See When They Look at Art
By Christopher Noey
Artists have long been stimulated and motivated by the work of those who came before them — sometimes, centuries before them. Interviews with 120 international contemporary artists discussing works from The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection that spark their imagination shed new light on art-making, museums, and the creative process. Images of the artworks appear alongside images of the contemporary artists’ work, allowing readers to discover a rich web of visual connections that spans cultures and millennia.
