New York, NY, February 25, 2009—Spurred by its highly successful 2006 expansion and renovation, The Morgan Library & Museum simultaneously continued to build its renowned collections. The results of this effort are unveiled in the exhibition New at the Morgan: Acquisitions Since 2004, on view April 17 through October 18, 2009.

The approximately one hundred works in the show demonstrate the great scope of the Morgan's collecting interests and include old master and modern drawings, literary and music manuscripts, illuminated texts, and one of the earliest examples of the printed book. Such seminal figures as Rembrandt, Matisse, van Gogh, Wilde, Joyce, Beethoven, and Wagner are represented. The earliest work is a treatise in praise of poetry, dating to ca. 1300, and the most recent, a drawing by Alexander Ross (b. 1960), dates to 2007.
