Amazing collection of humanity and it's history. Would love to know the story and life of each artist but thier contribution still endures.

Having seen "The Art of The Steal (2009)", it's hard to watch Montebello praise the Annenberg's 'love of art'.

Talent, technology, size and money combine to make this institution the best.

Not sure - he wanted to know what his expert curators thought, part of the collaborative process of acquisition. Thanks for asking!

Wonderful video, great, great director. But what happened to the face of the restored drawing at 28:32?? Cringeworthy!

It's urgently needed that women get much more involved in the choices and decision making of Museums like the Met. and not be present merely as commentators!

You say, , an art work worthy enough to be added to the Met collection, Gosh, , how that must have preyed on the mind of Botticelli, ,,,how it must have inspired Simone Martini to paint his Annunciation, Is the Met worthy of these artists, , , no, Does art civilise, , , no, , , , Goering loved Vermeer, America collects great art, , , it cant make it, Have art collections helped America, maybe it was better that the Homestead children were well fed and educated

With the exception of the much discussed and celebrated African Nail Fetish Figure, I failed to see a single human being of African descent in the entire documentary. It is a shame that the great ethnic diversity much sought after in the museum's collection is not reflected in the museum's personnel. It does not reflect the diversity of America.
