SATURDAY: Sketch the Morgan



Morgan Library & Museum
Saturday: March 16th, 2019

The Museum contains acquisitions of art and literature by financier Pierpont Morgan (1837–1913), His tastes were encyclopedic, and by the early 1900s his holdings were of such magnitude that he commissioned the architect Charles McKim to design a private library to house them.



The 1906 neo-classical McKim building, a National Historic Landmark, remains the heart and soul of the Morgan today. Over the years, the museum has added the beautiful Morgan brownstone residence to its campus, and in 2006 unveiled an acclaimed expansion by architect Renzo Piano.


Current exhibits include Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth and the Invention and Design: Early Italian Drawings at the Morgan
