Hellenistic and Roman Art

The Leon Levy and Shelby White Court, a gallery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, houses the largest selection of Hellenistic and Roman art  - artwork created between 900 BC and fourth century AD [1] - in the museum.

The gallery is an endowment from philanthropist Leon Levy [2] and his wife, Shelby White. The couple donated $20 million to construct the gallery, which includes items from their collection as well.
