Views of the New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture

View images from the installation: http://www.metmuseum.org/special/new_european/galleries_images.asp The New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture have reopened with renovated rooms and eight thousand square feet of additional gallery space—the Henry J. Heinz II Galleries—to showcase works from 1800 through the early twentieth century. The renovated galleries feature all of the Museum's most loved nineteenth-century paintings, which have been on permanent display in the past, as well as works by Bonnard and Vuillard, Modigliani and Soutine, Matisse and Picasso, and other early modern artists. Among the many additions is a full-room assembly of "The Wisteria Dining Room," a French art nouveau interior designed by Lucien L?vy Dhurmer shortly before World War I that is the only complete example of its kind in the United States; Henry Lerolle's enormous The Organ Rehearsal (a church interior of 1885); a group of newly accessioned nineteenth-century landscape oil sketches; and a selection of rarely exhibited paintings by an international group of artists.
