Leonard A. Lauder Research Center for Modern Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Leonard A. Lauder Research Center for Modern Art is envisioned to be the world's leading center for scholarship on modern art, with a focus on Cubism. It is intended to be a catalyst for the understanding and appreciation of modern art and Cubism in particular, including its origins and influence. Through public lectures, exhibitions, publications, a sophisticated web presence, and a residency for Fellows and Research Scholars, the Center will make important contributions to the understanding of early twentieth-century art.

The Center takes full advantage of its location within The Metropolitan Museum of Art and is unique in its ability to offer object-based study using a collection that spans 5,000 years of world history. Additionally, the Museum's renowned conservation facilities and staff provide unparalleled opportunities for examination and analysis of the Metropolitan's modern art collection.
