European Painting 1550–1700 and Hanoverian Silver

William I. Koch Gallery (Gallery 250)

One of the most dramatic spaces in the Museum, the Koch Gallery re-opened in September 2012. View a time-lapse video of the three-month-long transformation. Now, tapestries splendidly complement an array of Old Master paintings against a background of rich damask. A handsome pair of silver Baroque trumpets used in royal ceremonies for the German House of Hanover join the Museum's celebrated collection of Hanoverian silver—hear them play! Come visit this vast and sumptuous grand room fit for royalty.
