The Brooklyn Museum is the second largest art museum in New York and among the largest in the United States. It is housed in a 560,000 square foot landmark Beaux-Arts building, set amid 19th century parks and gardens. The architects (McKim, Mead and White) envisioned it as the largest museum building in the world, but only one-sixth of their design was completed. This book, the next in the Art Spaces series celebrating the architecture of buildings containing art and design, traces its 1893-1927 execution and subsequent redevelopment. It features many fascinating archival images and details views of the building's lively decorative programme including the new entrance pavilion that makes this historic edifice a true building for the future.
