World-renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki designed the new facility, which joins the still-active exhibition space found in the original building. Isozaki also added an outdoor sculpture terrace, a museum cafe and courtyard, and a museum shop and other improvements. In addition to providing space in which to show the permanent collection, exhibitions of a scale and quality not previously seen in Miami are now be featured at the Bass. The museum’s permanent collection includes European paintings from the 15th through the early 20th centuries, with special emphasis on northern European art of the Renaissance and baroque periods, including Dutch and Flemish masters. Past exhibitions have included the works of Picasso, Frida Kahlo, and Francois Marie Banier.
