Modern Art Foyer

Moving to the Mezzanine Level, visitors will encounter the first of a suite of galleries dedicated to modern and contemporary art, beginning with the date of the New York Armory show in 1913, when modern art came to the United States. Several oil paintings from the Museum’s extensive holdings by Pablo Picasso have pride of place here, along with works by his contemporaries, including Juan Gris and Henry Moore—presented for the first time at UMMA in galleries uniquely devoted to modern art.
