Beautiful European Masterpieces painting at Metropolitan Museum
EUROPEAN MASTERPIECES

Spanning 500 years, European Masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York offers a breath-taking journey from the 1420s and emerging Renaissance to conclude at the height of early twentieth century Post-Impressionism. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity also allows visitors to experience works by painters such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Turner, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Monet, direct from The Met’s collection – one of the finest collections of European painting in the world, the majority of which rarely leave permanent display in New York.
