The museum’s 1916 building was the culmination of years of planning. Early picturesque designs by museum architects Benjamin Hubbell and Dominick Benes included facades featuring sculptures, mosaics, and ornamental architraves. These decorative design elements were eliminated as unnecessary or too costly and a more severe classical building emerged.
Paintings aren’t just made on canvas with oil! Next time you’re in the galleries, check out some paintings created a bit differently.
