Caption / Share

Manhattan's Metropolitan Museum of Art takes center stage this fall season. Its promising exhibitions include the highly anticipated "Bernini: Sculpting in Clay" (Oct. 3- Jan. 6), including "Model for the Lion on the Four Rivers Fountain" (c. 1649-50). Composed of about 50 masterly terra-cotta models and about 30 drawings by Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680), it will bring us closer to the mind, eye and workshop of the greatest of Italian Baroque sculptors.

Among other must-see exhibitions is Met's "Matisse: In Search of True Painting" (Dec. 4-March 17). The show highlights the artist's dialogue with his own earlier works and focuses on repeated images and themes executed in pairs, trios and series.
