The 50,000 objects in The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s comprehensive collection of European sculpture and decorative arts reflect the development of various art forms in Western Europe from the early fifteenth through the early twentieth century. Marina Kellen French Curator Wolfram Koeppe’s wide-ranging interests have contributed to acquisitions now included as essential masterpieces in this historically significant collection. In his lecture, “Building Bridges – Two Decades of Collecting Central European Sculpture and Decorative Arts at The Met,” Koeppe speaks about building The Met’s expansive compendium of central European sculpture, woodwork and furniture, goldsmithwork, and horological and mathematical instruments.
