#Yale #University #Art #Gallery Reopens After #Renovations

This year the Yale University Art Gallery acquired Luis de Morales’s 16th-century “#Christ Carrying the #Cross,” displayed in its #European Galleries.

NEW #HAVEN — In a museum era dominated by the vying forces of bad economics and compulsive building, it’s a miracle when something comes out right, which makes the opening of the splendidly renovated and expanded Yale University Art Gallery here a happy event. The angels of art, design and budgetary planning were on duty. Everything worked. The country’s oldest university art museum has arrived at a kind of institutional ideal of opposites in balance.
