Nearly every year since 1975, the Metropolitan Museum has published a selection of its notable acquisitions. This publication has proved to be an efficient vehicle for bringing to the public's attention the most important works of art added to the collections. However, the increasing cost of art on the one hand, together with limited funds for such purchases on the other, have inescapably diminished the number of truly noteworthy acquisitions. Concomitantly, the publication has become a forum for the discussion of artworks that-while filling important gaps in various departmental collections-are not in the first tier, and would likely have to wait patiently before otherwise appearing in print. Thus, the nature of the publications has unmistakably evolved. Indeed, as it now, in effect, has a twofold purpose, we have re-titled it "Recent Acquisitions: A Selection".
