ID : 7779   
« back to classes page

Hear about art collecting in New York with an illustrated lecture on J.P. Morgan as collector.  Morgan became president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1904. Arguably the greatest collector in American history, Morgan helped transform the Met into one of the world's greatest museums.  In addition, his son drew from his late father's collections to create the great museum now known as the Morgan Library & Museum. Morgan's collections also greatly enriched Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum, yet another of the country's great museums.  Learn about Morgan the man and the collector, and about his librarian, assistant, and adviser, the remarkable African-American woman Belle da Costa Greene, among much else.
