If you’ve been in the European galleries in the last few weeks, you’ve probably noticed a dramatic transformation in Gallery 10!

The gallery has been reinstalled as part of the celebrations of the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Layton Art Gallery, which laid the foundation for what would become the Milwaukee Art Museum.¬† We’ve decided to call it Mr. Layton’s Gallery, after Milwaukee¬†philanthropist Frederick Layton, who started it all.
