In order to accommodate a wide-range of viewers, the museum acquired popular artwork that was easy to understand, and technical pieces for the art savvy.

One of the most recognizable paintings was the "The Librarian" by the Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

In the painting, books are stacked in a way that represents a portrait of a person.

A different painting used a cylindrical mirror to transform a distorted image.  The painting, "King Frederick Ⅲ", by German artist Gerdt Dittmers, displays a thorough attention to detail as the skewed image is painted on a flat board.                                 (S.H)
