Mr. Morgan's Study
With few exceptions, all the paintings, sculpture, and decorative objects in Mr. Morgan's Study are from Pierpont Morgan's collections. The paintings are primarily by Italian and Northern Renaissance masters; the objets d'art range in date from the third millennium B.C. to the nineteenth century, and give some indication of the original scope and diversity of Morgan's once vast holdings. Following his death, his son gave away most of the collection; the Metropolitan Museum of Art was the principal beneficiary, receiving between 6,000 and 8,000 objects.
