Gallatin's Gallery of Living Art -- renamed the Museum of Living Art in 1936 -- which was restricted to "fresh and individual" works by living artists. At the time of its inauguration, the Gallery of Living Art was the only institution in the country that provided continuous public access to the latest international developments in modern art.)
