Yale University Art Gallery
Yale University Art Gallery Review
Since its founding in 1832, this art gallery has amassed more than 200,000 works from around the world, dating from ancient Egypt to the present day. Highlights include works by Vincent van Gogh, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Winslow Homer, and Thomas Eakins, as well as Etruscan and Greek vases, Chinese ceramics and bronzes, early Italian paintings, and a collection of American decorative arts that is considered one of the world's finest. The gallery's landmark main building is also of note. Opened in 1953, it was Louis I. Kahn's first major commission and the first modernist building on the neo-Gothic Yale campus. Over the years, its extensive open spaces were subdivided into galleries, classrooms, and offices, but a major renovation, completed in 2006, restored it to Kahn's original conception.
