The New Galleries for 19th- and Early 20th-Century European Paintings and Sculpture reopened with renovated rooms and 8,000 square feet of additional gallery space--the Henry J. Heinz II Galleries--to showcase works from 1800 through the early 20th century. The renovated galleries feature all of the Museum's most loved nineteenth-century paintings, which have been on permanent display in the past, as well as works by Bonnard, Vuillard, Soutine, Matisse, Picasso, and other early modern artists. Among the many additions are a full-room assembly of "The Wisteria Dining Room," a French art nouveau interior designed by Lucien Dhurmer shortly before World War I that is the only complete example of its kind in the United States; Henry Lerolle's enormous 'The Organ Rehearsal' (a church interior of 1885); a group of newly accessioned 19th-century landscape oil sketches; and a selection of rarely exhibited paintings by an international group of artists.
