the cloisters

The neo-medieval architecture of The Cloisters in upper Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park provides a perfect context for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collections from the Middle Ages.  The unique setting allows for works of art to be incorporated into the fabric of the building itself, often installed in a manner suggesting their original functions and situations.  Nothing benefits more from this enhanced perspective – and natural daylight – than the museum’s superlative collection of stained glass.
