Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Angel Tree: Celebrating Christmas at The Metropolitan Museum of Art showcases the magnificent collection of Neapolitan Baroque angels and crèche figures that has thrilled visitors from across the country each Christmas season for more than 50 years. New fiber-optic lighting and a new tree now enhance its beauty.

More than 50 angels and 100 crèche figures, many sculpted by major artists of the period, represent all who came to worship the Babe. This is a true family book, starting with the story of the Nativity and then focusing on the scene in large, gloriously reproduced pictures of the angels and of townspeople and animals, shepherds and their flocks, kings and grand ladies.

About the Author

Loretta Hines Howard collected and donated the crèche figures to the museum. Her daughter, Linn Howard, now oversees the installation. She and Mary Jane Pool, formerly editor in chief of House & Garden magazine, also collaborated on Abrams previous volume on the Angel Tree. Elliott Erwitt, the noted Magnum photographer, also photographed the previous book. Now, using state-of-the art digital photography, he recaptures the beauty and grandeur of the Angel Tree.
