As the leaves fall and the temperatures drop, you can stay warm at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and immerse yourself in these diverse new exhibitions.


18th-Century Pastels
This exhibition offers a variety of 18th-century pastel paintings including vivid landscapes by Jean Pillement, European Old Master paintings and several other works by French, British, German and Danish artists. The image above is just one work in this fragile medium that allows viewers a glimpse into the past. Through Dec. 29.

Medieval Treasures From Hildesheim
This exhibit highlights medieval art from the churches of Hildesheim, Germany, the leading center of metallurgical art in the Middle Ages. It will provide the opportunity to view 50 rare medieval works, including the monumental Ringelheim Crucifix, the Crosier of Abbot Erkanbald and the Reliquary of Saint Oswald. Through Jan. 5.

Silla: Korea’s Golden Kingdom
Do you ever sit at work wishing you were in “National Treasure,” discovering long lost treasures? Then you should carve out some weekend hours to stroll through this exhibition, representing the artistic traditions of the Silla Kingdom. Buddhist treasures include intricately crafted ornaments, gold crowns and rare objects from Central and West Asia, demonstrating the artistic achievements of Silla during its rise to prominence. Nov. 4–Feb. 23.

Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China
Every day, we press ink into paper, whether it’s writing a to-do list or a signing a birthday card. But do we ever really stop to take a look at the creativity of what ink can create in today’s mostly digital world? This exhibit takes a look at the contemporary ink art of ancient China through 70 works grouped into four themes: the written word, new landscapes, abstraction and beyond the brush. Dec. 11–April 6.
