The Study, or West Room, was enriched by a more substantive display of works from the collection that surrounded Pierpont Morgan in the early 1900s when he used the room for personal business, as well as with objects that have been acquired since.
Additional works of sculpture were placed on the low bookshelves lining the perimeter of the room and the lush, velvet-covered furnishings were painstakingly reupholstered to evoke the atmosphere of the original study.
Another change has been to allow visitors to look into the vault that Morgan had built to house his favorite objects. A curtain shrouding the entrance was removed, new lighting fixtures have been installed, and the shelves of the vault have been filled with original storage boxes as well as books and small works of art.
