This grand display of the seminal works that define the excellence of the MMA’s collection includes paintings, sculpture, glass, and works on paper acquired during the Museum’s first century, reinstalled in new ways to promote fresh perspectives. Many exceptional works that are less frequently seen, in addition to all-time favorites, will inform the wealth and diversity of acquisitions that now set the stage for energetic collecting in the MMA’s second century.
