The Morgan Library & Museum Acquires Antique Sultanabad from Nazmiyal Collection
On October 30th, 2010 the Morgan Library & Museum, which houses one of the world’s greatest collections of artistic, literary, and musical works, is getting a new look. In addition to housing one of the world’s premier collections of fine art and literature, the Library itself is a breathtaking testament to the rich history of architecture and design.
Now, after 100 years, the McKim building is undergoing renovations to restore and enhance the charm inherent to the building with a beautiful antique Sultanabad from Nazmiyal. William Griswold, director of the Morgan Library & Museum says of the McKim building: “The McKim building is the heart and soul of The Morgan Library & Museum. Not only does it embody the taste and vision of the museum’s founder and patron, Pierpont Morgan, but over the years its beautiful rooms have become synonymous with all that makes the Morgan special.
No visit is complete without a tour of the McKim building, and now, with this ambitious project and the installation of some of the Morgan’s outstanding treasures, that experience will be greatly enhanced.” “We are both honored and excited to have been a part of this exciting project – the Pierpont Morgan’s multi-tiered library is now truly the most beautiful room in New York City” Nazmiyal Antique Rugs & Carpets.
