Yale University Art Gallery

In all the time I’ve spent at Yale, I’ve never really had a good sense of its Art Gallery, which has existed since 1832, nearly as old as the National Gallery (it was described as a ‘Pinacotheca for Colonel Trumbull’), and is spread across two buildings, one which is Tuscan Romanesque, opened in 1928 and designed by Egerton Swartout (no, I hadn’t heard of him either) and the other, much more famous, designed by Louis Kahn early in his career, when he was teaching in Yale.

This is the Tuscan Romanesque part:-



And this is Louis Kahn in 1953:-
