About 1474 something never seen in pr int before rolled off the press: the English language. William Caxton\, an English merchant and diplomat\, had recently learned of the new technology of print invented by Johann Gutenberg twenty years before\, and Caxton capi talized on the commercial opportunity offered by this revolutionary inventi on. William Caxton and the Birth of English Printing celebrates this founda tional moment in the history of English literature and language. Caxton pub lished key works of English literature\, such as Chaucer and Malory\, as we ll as short religious and didactic texts\, many of which he translated from French or Latin. Through his publishing activity\, Caxton also helped to s tabilize the English language by promoting a single dialect\, and through p rint this dialect became more prevalent and helped to form the basis of our modern language.

\n

As artifacts of nat ionalistic importance\, Caxton imprints have been choice prizes for collect ors since the 18th century. Pierpont Morgan favored Caxton over Gutenberg a s a founder of printing and strove to acquire a premiere collection of his work. The Morgan has the third largest collection of Caxtons in the world\, preserved for their literary\, linguistic\, and historical significance.\n

This is the first major travel ing exhibition devoted to the British photographer Captain Linnaeus Tripe ( 1822&ndash\;1902). Between 1854 and 1860\, Tripe produced an unprecedented series of photographs documenting the landscape and cultural artifacts of s outh India and Burma (now the Republic of Myanmar). With few models to foll ow\, he developed a professional practice under the auspices of the British East India Company\, the commercial enterprise governing the region as Gre at Britain's imperial agent. As an officer in the British army\, he travele d with diplomatic expeditions\, creating a visual inventory of celebrated a rchaeological sites and monuments\, religious and secular buildings&mdash\; some now destroyed&mdash\;as well as geological formations and scenic vista s. His training as a military surveyor\, where the choice of viewpoint and careful attention to visual details were essential\, gave his photographs a striking aesthetic rigor that distinguishes them from the picturesque trav el views characteristic of the period.

\n

This exhibition of approximately sixty photographs traces Tripe's work fr om his earliest images made in England (1852&ndash\;1854)\, to those create d on expeditions to the south Indian kingdom of Mysore (1854)\, to Burma (1 855)\, and again to south India (1857&ndash\;1858). Using large-format wax paper negatives\, he achieved remarkably consistent results despite the sou th Asian heat and humidity\, which posed constant challenges to photographi c chemistry. The comprehensive scope of his work offered its British audien ce a virtual tour through a foreign landscape\, rendering it knowable and p reserving sites already bearing traces of colonial rule.

This exhibition\, presented in the Museum's Chinese Galleries and Anna Wintour Costume Center\, will expl ore how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries\, result ing in highly creative distortions of cultural realities and mythologies. H igh fashion will be juxtaposed with Chinese costumes\, paintings\, porcelai ns\, and other art\, as well as films\, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery.

\n

From the earliest p eriod of European contact with China in the sixteenth century\, the West ha s been enchanted with enigmatic objects and imagery from the East\, providi ng inspiration for fashion designers from Paul Poiret to Yves Saint Laurent \, whose fashions are infused at every turn with romance\, nostalgia\, and make-believe. Through the looking glass of fashion\, designers conjoin disp arate stylistic references into a pastiche of Chinese aesthetic and cultura l traditions.

\n

The exhibition will fea ture more than one hundred examples of haute couture and avant-garde ready- to-wear alongside Chinese art. Filmic representations of China will be inco rporated throughout to reveal how our visions of China are framed by narrat ives that draw upon popular culture\, and also to recognize the importance of cinema as a medium through which to understand the richness of Chinese h istory.

\n
\n

The Anna Wintour Costume Center's Lizzie and Jona than Tisch Gallery will present a series of "mirrored reflections" through time and space\, focusing on Imperial China\; the Republic of China\, espec ially Shanghai in the 1920s\, 1930s\, and 1940s\; and the People's Republic of China\, with an emphasis on changing images of Chairman Mao. These refl ections\, as well as others in the exhibition\, will be illustrated with sc enes from films by such groundbreaking Chinese directors as Zhang Yimou\, C hen Kaige\, Ang Lee\, and Wong Kar Wai. Distinct vignettes will be devoted to "women of style\," including Oei Huilan (the former Madame Wellington Ko o)\, Soong May-Ling (Madame Chiang Kai-shek)\, and Empress Dowager Cixi.

\n

Directly above the Anna Wintour Costume Center\, the Chinese Galleries on the second floor will showcase fashion f rom the 1700s to the present\, juxtaposed with decorative arts from Imperia l China\, including jade\, lacquer\, cloisonné\;\, and blue-and-white porcelain\, mostly drawn from the Met's collection. The Astor Court will f eature a thematic vignette dedicated to Chinese opera\, focusing on the cel ebrated performer Mei Lanfang\, who inspired John Galliano's spring 2003 Ch ristian Dior Haute Couture Collection\, ensembles from which will be showca sed alongside Mr. Mei's original opera costumes.

Vincent van Gogh (1853&ndash\; 1890) brought his work in Provence to a close with exuberant bouquets of sp ring flowers&mdash\;two of irises and two of roses\, in contrasting formats and color schemes&mdash\;in which he sought to impart a "calm\, unremittin g ardor" to his "last touch of the brush." Painted on the eve of his depart ure from the asylum at Saint-Ré\;my and conceived as a series or ense mble on a par with the Sunflowers decoration painted earlier in Arles\, the group includes the Metropolitan Museum's Irises and Roses and their counterpa rts: the upright Irises from the Van Gogh Museum\, Amsterdam\, and the horizontal Roses from the National Gallery of Art\, Washingto n\, D.C.

\n

This exhibition will reunite the four paintings for the first time since the artist's death and is time d to coincide with the blooming of the flowers that captivated his attentio n. It will open 125 years to the week that Van Gogh announced to his brothe r Theo\, on May 11 and 13\, 1890\, that he was working on these "large bouq uets\," and will provide a singular opportunity to reconsider Van Gogh's ar tistic aims and the impact of dispersal and color fading on his intended re sults.

In addition to a long and prol ific career as a painter\, American artist Robert Motherwell (1915&ndash\;1 991) was a dedicated teacher\, a scholar of art and literature\, and a cham pion of fellow artists. He was the youngest member of the "New York School" of Abstract Expressionists\, whose name he coined and for whom he was a th eorist and spokesman.

\n

With his wide a rray of intellectual interests&mdash\;from French Symbolist poetry to philo sophy\, music\, and modernist painting&mdash\;Motherwell provided a critica l link between European artists and his American contemporaries. The works in this gallery have been assembled from the permanent collection and from the holdings of the Dedalus Foundation\, founded by Motherwell in 1981\, to mark the centenary of the artist's birth and to convey the broad range of his artistic activity\, from monumental paintings (his work is also install ed in gallery 920)\, to collages\, p rints\, and illustrated books.

This installation features len gths of fabric for an unmade man's suit and waistcoat\, as well as a select ion of embroidery samples for fashionable menswear made between about 1760 and 1815.

\n

During this period\, France was the undisputed epicenter of the European fashionable world\, and profe ssional embroidery workshops there produced a dizzying array of colorful de signs from which a man could choose. The installation features a copy of L'Art du Brodeur (The Art of the Embroiderer)\, which was p ublished in Paris in 1770. This book contains detailed descriptions about s ubjects such as preparing fabric to be embroidered and the variety of threa ds used in a workshop\, as well as illustrations of designs for men's suits .

\n

Seen together\, the fabrics and the book provide a glimpse into the world of vividly colored and highly decora tive fashion that was a key component of an upper-class European man's life in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
