The present exhibition is one of a series of five worked out in the partnership etween the Metropolitan Museum and the Réunion des Musées Nationaux of France. The others are: "Nineteenth-Century French Drawings from The Metropolitan Museum of Art", which closed at the Louvre last month and is now on view here; "Italian Renaissance Drawings from the Louvre", to be shown at the Metropolitan in October; "Impressionism", which will include some forty-five of the greatest paintings in the style and will be seen at the Louvre in September and here in December; and finally, "French Painting from David to Delacroix", which is planned to open in Paris in the winter of 1974, followed by showings at the Detroit Institute of Art in the spring of 1975 and the Metropolitan in the summer.
Following its appearance at the Grand Palais in Paris, "Masterpieces of Tapestry" is presented in New York in association with and under the patronage of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Arts, and under the sponsorship of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Heller of New York City. Without the extraordinary aid of the two Endowments and the enlightened generosity of these two art-loving private patrons the exhibition simply would not have been possible here.
