Virtual MOMA: The Modern Classics

This is what’s going on in the Museum of Modern Art in New York this summer. The museum is closed while it undergoes a renovation, it is scheduled to reopen in October.

While MOMA itself is closed, Virtual MOMA takes you behind the closed doors for a look at the museum’s collection. These photos are from the fifth floor where you’ll find the paintings that MOMA is best known for, the early 20th century European masters. Lots of familiar stuff here. These are modern classics, the paintings that you see images of on tote bags, coffee mugs and coasters.
