About the author (1985)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City needs no introduction. It is the preeminent art museum in the Americas and rivaled by few European museums. In fact, for sheer quality and breadth of collection, it has no equal.

Morrison H. Heckscher is Lawrence A. Fleischman Chairman of the American Wing of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
