Jerusalem 1000–1400 at Metropolitan Museum of Art

NEW YORK---This September's exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art will illuminate the key role that the Holy City played in shaping the art of the period from 1000 to 1400. This will be the first exhibition to unravel the various cultural traditions and aesthetic strands that enriched and enlivened the medieval city. Over 200 works of art will be gathered from some 60 lenders worldwide. Nearly a quarter of the objects will come from Jerusalem, including key loans from its religious communities, some of which have never before shared their treasures outside their walls.

Metropolitan Museum of Art: "Jerusalem 1000–1400, Every People Under Heaven" (September 26 - January 8, 2017); 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY; (212)535-7710;
