Art History

Since its original building opened to the public in 1880, the Museum has undertaken several major programs of expansion and remodeling to best exhibit its ever- growing collection. The structures along Fifth Avenue are additions to the Museums nineteenth-century core, which is set back in Central Park. Emphasizing symmetry and classical detailing, Richard Morris Hunts (American, 18271895) 1895 Beaux-Arts design includes the building seen at center, which still stands today as the Museums main entrance on Fifth Avenue. The north and south wings were designed by the firm of McKim, Mead and White as part of a comprehensive master plan, and were constructed in sections from 1906 to 1926. The image on the eraser shows Hunts original front steps before the entrance and the entire front plaza were renovated in 1970.
