Gallery 151, located on the west side of The Robert and Renée Belfer Court, represents several regions—the Cycladic Islands, Crete, and the parts of the Greek mainland centered around Mycenae—where major works of art were first produced. The respective cultures, known as Cycladic, Minoan, and Mycenaean, flourished during the prehistoric period known as the Bronze Age, between about 3200 and 1050 B.C.
Displayed nearby are works of the subsequent Geometric period of about 1050–700 B.C., when the first Greek city-states and sanctuaries were established.
