The Fogg Art Museum is the oldest of Harvard University's art museums. It covers the history of western art from the Middle Ages to the present. It opened to the public in 1895 and was originally housed in an Italian Renaissance style building designed by Richard Morris Hunt (designed and constructed between 1893 and 1895) that has since been demolished and replaced. The current building opened in 1925 and was designed by Coolidge, Shepley, Bulfinch, and Abbott in Georgian Revival style. It is open every day apart from national holidays. Its main areas of strength are Italian early Renaissance, British pre-Raphaelites, and nineteenth-century French art. It includes the Maurice Wertheim Collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist works, and the Boston area's most important collection of Picasso's work.
