Michael Kimmelman Biography

Michael Kimmelman is chief art critic of The New York Times and a contributor to The New York Review of Books. While his critiques are certainly an assessment of art, they also seek to help everyday people understand the relationship between art and life. A Pulitzer Prize finalist, Kimmelman is the author of Portraits: Talking with Artists at the Met, the Modern, the Louvre and Elsewhere, which was named a Best Book of the Year by The Times and The Washington Post.

His most recent book, The Accidental Masterpiece: On the Art of Life and Vice Versa, which Time magazine described as "transcendent," was a New York Times bestseller and a Times Notable Book of the Year. The Accidental Masterpiece discusses the notion that art is more than a painting hanging in a gallery - it is the myriad aesthetic experiences we have everyday, a concept that can also be seen in Kimmelman's critiques.

Kimmelman is the critic and the critiqued. A concert pianist who has performed around the country, Kimmelman himself has first-hand experience of being critiqued, allowing him to share an artist's susceptibility.
