The Museum's soaring Main Gallery has been returned to its original splendor. This beautifully proportioned space has reopened as a picture gallery displaying the Museum's distinguished collection of European paintings in an installation that recalls the deeply stacked galleries of French and British salon exhibitions. Masterpieces from the Renaissance through the early 19th century - including many that have not been on view for some time - fill the walls.
This restoration was supported by the Champlin Foundation, Ida Ballou Littlefield Memorial Trust, and the Museum Associates.
