The Dahesh Museum, 178 East 64th Street.

January 16, 2016

 How many museums can you name that house just Academic Art from the 19th and 20th centuries in the USA?  None. Neither could we, until we found the Dahesh Museum. This enviable collection boasts work by well known artists such as William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Rosa Bonheur, Jean-Léon Gérôme, and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. It also includes impressive works by lesser known artists such as Jaroslav Čermák, Pascal Adolphe Dagnan-Bouveret, and Léon Augustin Lhermitte. 

 

         While the collection is not currently on display The Dahesh Museum recently purchased a new venue in New York City at 178 East 64th Street.  As yet they have not given a specific opening date but it is slated for 2016 (Vogel). See you there!
