The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has been gifted 200 works of art by the California-based television and film producer Dick Wolf. Indeed, part of the bequest will see two rooms in the museum, numbers 500 and 503, renamed the Dick Wolf Galleries. Works include paintings by artists such as Botticelli, Orazio Gentileschi (pictured), Artemisia Gentileschi, and Vincent van Gogh.

According to press reports:

“With its dazzling range of European paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, and works on paper, the Dick Wolf Collection represents one of the most meaningful gifts to the Met in recent memory, truly transforming and adding new dimensions to the museum’s holdings,” said Max Hollein, the museum’s CEO, in a statement. “Furthermore, the substantial financial contribution will provide critical support for the Met’s collection displays and scholarly pursuits.”
