About the Book

This stunningly illustrated e-book celebrates more than one hundred of the greatest works of art in the Brooklyn Museum, from the work of ancient Egyptians to the most cutting-edge contemporary artists.  Numerous comparative images are available to the reader in this electronic format.

From its beginnings in 1823, the institution has a long history of collecting from all around the world. As such, this e-book features fascinating artworks from the museum’s collections of Egyptian, Classical, Islamic, Pre-Columbian and Amazonian, Spanish Colonial, African, Native American, European and American art. Also on display are vibrant and arresting pieces from its Contemporary and Decorative arts collections, and from the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

Highlights include paintings by William Merritt Chase, Georgia O’Keeffe and John Singer Sargent, a 5th-century Shamaness figure from Japan, a plate from Hiroshige’s One Hundred Famous Views of Ido, a Judy Chicago installation from the 1970s and a mummy cartonnage from 945-718 B.C.E. Each artwork is accompanied by a descriptive entry, and in addition, the authors explore inter-connecting themes, showing how these works can mean more when seen together, in  cross-cultural groupings, than when set apart. Brooklyn Museum Highlights provides an introduction not only to the museum’s masterpieces, but also to a new way of seeing these works of art.
