New York's MoMA enjoys an exceptional reputation among the world's museums thanks both to its rich collections and its unique history. The institute was established in 1929 and, even then, it was home to many exquisite artistic pieces. From the beginning, it has distinguished itself from other museums by dedicating whole sections to the art of its times. It has had a singular influence in the art world, exhibiting, among others, Walt Disney, Jackson Pollock and even Paul Cézanne.
