The Morgan Library & Museum was the home of Pierpont Morgan until his death in 1913. His library (a big favorite of his) was built from 1902-1906.
The Library & Museum now hold one of the world's greatest collections of artistic, literary, musical, and historical works. Depending on what is on display from the vast collection, you may see original works by Mozart and Beethoven, drawings by Rembrandt and Rubens, medieval and Renaissance works, one of three Gutenberg Bibles, literary manuscripts of Dickens and Twain, and five-thousand-year-old Near Eastern carvings. There are several computer stations in the center of the museum that allow visitors to virtually tour the collection.
On my recent visit, I was thrilled by the Saul Steinberg exhibit (entitled ILLUMINATIONS). Mr. Steinberg was a longetime illustrator at The New Yorker - although I knew this, I was shocked by how many of his drawings I was familiar with from other sources.
