Designed by McKim, Mead and White and completed in 1895, the magnificent Renaissance Revival building marries art with architecture. In addition to mosaics, wall paintings, and murals, you'll see features made of nearly 20 varieties of marble. View the murals by Pierre Puvis de Chauvannes, John Singer Sargent, and Edwin Austin Abbey. Also see the work of Augustus St. Gaudens, Federick MacMonnies, and Daniel Chester French, among others.
