Art History

Rudolph de Harak's (American, 19242002) award-winning design for the Museum's shopping bag was introduced at the opening of the new Art Publication Center, now referred to simply as "the bookshop," off the Museum's Great Hall. The shopping bag commemorates a merchandising tradition dating back as far as the existence of the Museum itself. When the doors opened at its first, temporary location in 1872, the Museum was already selling reproductions of its newly acquired Old Master paintings.
