Of all the art, the contemporary collection on the
third floor is the one that seems most at home in Kahn’s building.
Unlike in the early European galleries, the pogo panels here are painted light
colors and are more loosely arrayed. The gallery’s definition of contemporary
art begins with Impressionism, so paintings by Monet and Pissarro—and the
gallery’s famed Van Gogh, The Night Cafe—hang in this more modern setting. Through the
door, one can see part of the American collection in the older building of the
Art Gallery, which will get its turn at renovation in the next year or two.
