This long gallery, within the Leon Levy and Shelby White Galleries, features a large display with sixty cases of study material, comprising some four thousand works in all media and covering the entire cultural and chronological span of the department's collection, from the art of prehistoric Greece through late Roman art.
Among the noteworthy works in this area are a collection of geometric Greek vases given to the Metropolitan in 1930 by the Greek government and a Roman transport amphora given by the oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. Computer screens located throughout the study collection allow visitors to access electronic labels for the objects.
