"Flowering Orchards," part of The Met's collection.
The Cloisters (website) is a Vivarium (Botanical) in New York. It is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Official description from Cloisters:
The Cloisters, the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe, was assembled from architectural elements, both domestic and religious, that date from the twelfth through the fifteenth century. The building and its cloistered gardens—located in Fort Tryon Park in Northern Manhattan—are treasures in themselves, effectively part of the collection housed there. The Cloisters collection comprises approximately three thousand works of art from medieval Europe, dating from about the ninth to the sixteenth century. View selected highlights from the collection, or learn more about the curatorial department that oversees The Cloisters collection.
Wikipedia excerpt:
The Cloisters is a museum located in Fort Tryon Park, New York City. The building, which is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was reconstructed in the 1930s from the architectural elements of several European medieval abbeys. It is used to exhibit art and architecture from Medieval Europe. The Cloisters, which is near the northern tip of Manhattan island on a hill overlooking the Hudson River, incorporates parts from five French cloistered abbeys. Buildings at Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Bonnefont-en-Comminges, Trie-en-Bigorre, and Froville were all disassembled brick-by-brick before being shipped to New York. Between 1934 and 1938, the features were reassembled in Fort Tryon Park.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the Cloisters homepage or our exhibitions list for N.Y.-wide exhibits.
