The Artist Project: What Artists See When They Look at Art
Foreword by Thomas P. Campbell Essay 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.
