Located on Madison Ave at E. 36th street, The Morgan Museum and Research Library containing the private holdings of financier J.P Morgan and other benefactors, is an incomparable collection of original manuscripts, books, paintings, sculptures, cylinder seals and other fine works of literary and imaginary art, accessible to the public in its grandiose historic setting.
Below: A large collection of “Cylindrical Seals” are on display, dating back thousands of years. The cylinder, meticulously engraved, would render a relief image when impressed in a soft medium.
We enjoyed visiting this museum while in “The City” last week.
