Description - Treasures of the Brooklyn Museum by Kevin L. Stayton

Located in the heart of King's County, the Brooklyn Museum is an anchor of New York City and a world class institution. The museum's 560,000-square foot building is a Beaux Arts masterpiece, housing over one-and-a-half million works of art, from ancient Assyrian reliefs to striking period homes and Old Master paintings, as well as works by the top contemporary artists of today. This handsome little book illustrates a curated selection of these pieces, including highlights of the museum's renowned ancient Egyptian collection, its expansive holdings in American art, and its unrivaled selection of contemporary feminist art, including Judy Chicago's Dinner Party. The perfect souvenir from the museum's shop, or for any visitor to the borough, this Tiny Folio features spectacular photography throughout, as well as a special selection of images highlighting Brooklyn's rich artistic history.
