A History of Western Art Tour at The Met Museum

Part art historical lecture, part museum visit, this private tour will be an engaging introduction to the history of art in Europe and America, from its foundational moment in classical Greece to the challenges of traditional artistic techniques in the twentieth century. We’ll guide you through the world-class collection of the Met Museum in order to tell the story of the artists and styles that shaped how the modern world thinks of painting and sculpture. This tour can be arranged for a single session, or a series of scheduled guided tours. This tour is perfect for those who always wished they had taken an art history course in college, or for those who want a more exciting and dynamic way to gain a fundamental understanding of the development of art in the West throughout the last twenty-five hundred years.

You’ll explore:

  • Ancient Greek and Roman classical sculpture
  • A glimpse of Medieval art
  • Renaissance art that brought a renewed focus on the classical forms
  • Baroque, Neo-Classical, Romanticism and Realism periods
  • Salon to Impressionist paintings that set the stage for modern art

Admission
$22 per adult, $15 per senior, and $10 per child.
