MUSEUM SHAPES (THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART)

What shape is the wheel?

Shapes. You never know where they'll turn up.

At The Metropolitan Museum of Art, for instance, a triangle isn't just a triangle; it's a Netherlandish doctor's cap. A circle becomes the bottom of a Japanese barrel. A rectangle waves in the wind as an Impressionist flag.

Some of the most engaging works of art from the Museum's collections, from Pompeiian murals to Renaissance armor to modern paintings, provide an exciting way to hunt for shapes. Whether looking at works by Picasso, Degas, or Van Gogh, the littlest reader can track down circles and squares, diamonds and rectangles, and so much more on a journey of creative discovery and fun.
