A lot of visitors make a beeline to our impressive collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist works. Up until a couple of weeks ago, they were found in a small, low-ceilinged gallery. Theresa Papanikolas, curator of European and American art, has liberated these popular paintings by moving them into the high-ceilinged, expansive gallery that was formerly a dull pink period room of 18th-century European art and decorative objects. Now it is an airy white space where you can compare the Vlaminck and the Cézanne (they hang next to each other), and the Monet has lots of breathing room.
