Published by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Typeset by Carol Liebowitz Report from the Director and the President L ike every cultural institution in New York and across the country, the Metropolitan Museum never expected to find itself facing the unprecedented challenges that were brought on by the recent global financial crisis.
This realignment—a painful but unavoidable process that was taken only after all possible cost-cutting measures had been introduced—was completed through a combination of voluntary retirements, the closing of retail outlets, attrition and a hiring freeze, the expiration of staff contracts, and involuntary personnel reductions, and it allowed the Museum to craft a budget that sharply reduces costs while remaining committed to fulfilling its mission.

Like other Caravaggesque painters, de Boulogne specialized in scenes of fortune-telling, drinking, and music making, and this captivating picture shows a soldier of fortune singing a love madrigal, accompanying himself on the lute.
The painting was one of eight canvases by the artist owned by Cardinal Mazarin —the famous chief minister of Louis XIV and an avid collector.
It has a special resonance in the Metropolitan, where there are related paintings by Watteau and Manet, both of whom may have known this work. Heads recto ; Studies of Three Figures and a Head verso by the Netherlandish master Gerard David is one of only nine or ten drawings known by the artist.
Unlike earlier Northern artists, David used the silver stylus in this drawing in a loose manner, and the liveliness and freshness of observation strongly suggest that at least some of these sketches were made directly from life.
