Albright–Knox Art Gallery

More from Albright–Knox Art Gallery... old and new.

The original 1905 gallery when completed had more marble columns than any building in the country other than the nations capitol.

The newer 1962 addition has a panoramic feel, more in line with contemporary galleries, with broad spaces and wide stairways.

So we have both strong vertical and sweeping horizontal... a nice contrast, but each elegant in different yet complementary ways.
