INAUGURAL MASTERWORKS EXHIBITION DEMONSTRATES QUALITY AND SCOPE OF THE MORGAN LIBRARY & MUSEUM'S COLLECTIONS

New York, NY, April 25, 2006—The Morgan Library & Museum reopens April 29, 2006, with double the exhibition space for its world-renowned collections. To inaugurate its new Renzo–Piano–designed campus, the Morgan presents a major exhibition of treasures from its permanent collection, a special exhibition about the Morgan's historic expansion project and Renzo Piano's design, and a new installation of some of Pierpont Morgan's favorite medieval masterpieces.

Masterworks from the Morgan presents more than three hundred masterworks drawn from all six of the Morgan's collection areas, including new acquisitions and works that have never been seen or have not been exhibited for many years. On view will be the finest, rarest, and most beautiful examples of master drawings and prints from the past five centuries; medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts; literary, historical, and music manuscripts; rare printed books; and ancient Near Eastern pictorial seals.
