Armenia! at The Met: Three Highlights from the Exhibition


In the fall of 2018, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is presenting a large-scale exhibition dedicated to the artistic and cultural achievements of the Armenian people through the Middle Ages. Armenia! is the first of its kind for The Met, spanning a period of fourteen centuries of medieval Armenian art. In a series of five videos for AGBU WebTalks, the curators of the show discuss the significance of this unique exhibition and the works represented in it. Here, Dr. C. Griffith Mann, highlights some of his favorite pieces from the exhibition, exploring their meaning, origins and how they fit into the larger tradition of Christian art.
