Well made, a quality product.

Although paintings are my favorite works of art, it's great to expand one's taste.

Up until the last few years the Page a Day folks used art from museums all over the world. This was great because you got to see a good mix of famous stuff along with unfamiliar paintings and sculptures by familiar artists from some of the smaller international museums. Well, I'm sure the administrative work along with the cost of the royalties of using all those different museums just got to be too much. So now it's just the Met, year after year. The Met certainly and obviously has a great and vast collection but in terms of their masterworks, there are bound to be repeats. In addition to, with the switch to solely the Met, the decorative arts pieces (furniture, costumes, dishes) increased enormously. I'd say at least every other day you've got a chair or a dish or a dress or a textile. Sculpture (except for old triptych type stuff) and contemporary art are conspicuously spare. It's still a fine calendar and looks elegant and is high quality. But I don't think I'll be purchasing it again this year.

If you're looking for an original gift to give an art aficionado, this calendar offers quality images of art from the Metropolitan Art Museum of New York. Although I've taken several art history classes at the Met through NYU, it seems impossible to see and remember everything. Art calendars are a great way to immerse yourself in diverse art daily. This calendar comes in plastic container that can be set up like a mini-easel so the masterpiece of the day is displayed on your desk all day for a visual treat. The pictures give my heart a lift when I see them--feel like I'm in a gallery at the Met. What great escapism!

I love the concept of this calendar--a masterpiece a day so the art is revealed in digestible pieces. About 2/3 of the photos are of paintings, and 1/3 is pottery, sculpture, jewelry etc. But some of these are painted as well. For example, in January all are paintings, except for one sword, one vase, 2 jewelry pieces, one sculpture and 3 pottery pieces.

This is an excellent gift for a child in which a parent could unveil the "masterpiece of the day" with them at story-time or bedtime. You can talk about what they see and like about the piece, background on the artist and history behind it. At the end of the year, the child can select their favorites and display them on their bulletin board. They are almost like square art flashcards. Design is becoming increasingly important in business and this is a fun way to expose children to art. When I was a headmistress at a private academy for preschool-eighth grade students, we had a masterpiece of the week from the Met and by the end of the year even the four and five-year-olds were recognizing paintings by Matisse, Hockney, Manet, Degas etc. Why wait until college for an art history class?

I bought this calendar for my son-in-law, who is an artist, for Christmas. I usually have a hard time finding just the right gift for him. He loves it and emails me images that he especially likes regularly. This will definitely be his Christmas present every year from now on!

The calendar is very nice, a bit too big for a desk calendar, but the quality of the images is awesome. A bit strange way of passing the days, but all in all a good product i would recommend everyone who likes art and daily calendars.

Unfortunately, there was a crack in the plastic support, but so far it is holding well.

Im so pleased I purchased this calendar. Each page is a nice size and beautifully display each image. The calendar features important works of art from the major artists - great way of revisiting the well known classics and becoming familiar with some we may not have seen before. I highly recommend.
