The museum, on West 53rd Street, is bigger. They’ve added about 47,000 additional square feet.

Gallery 503 features the juxtaposition of Pablo Picasso with two later American artists, Louise Bourgeois and Faith Ringgold.
In Gallery 406B you’ll find Henri Matisse’s pulse-quickening “Swimming Pool,” whose fragile blue cutouts can only be shown rarely.
