NEW YORK (REUTERS).- One museum's renovations are another's exhibition. Thus, 20 masterworks from Oberlin College's Allen Memorial Art Museum in Ohio will summer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York while the Allen Museum is closed for renovations.

From March 16 through August 29, 19 paintings and one sculpture from one of the finest college or university collections in the United States will be on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Met museum officials said.

Each Allen Museum work will be juxtaposed with a Metropolitan Museum piece to create the most exciting conversation between the two works, said Maryan Ainsworth, curator of European paintings at the Metropolitan Museum.

"We will be able to see the Allen Museum's 'Saint Sebastian Tended by Irene' by (Hendrick) ter Brugghen, one of the most important North Baroque paintings in the United States, next to ter Brugghen's 'Crucifixion' from the Met Museum," she said.

For that reason, the exhibition is called "Side by Side."

A special brochure about the works with maps of where to find them in the Metropolitan Museum's galleries will be published to accompany the exhibition.

Besides the ter Brugghen painting, works visiting from the Allen Museum include Cezanne's "Viaduct at l'Estaque" and Kirchner's "Self-Portrait as a Soldier" as well as works by Altdorfer, Turner, Monet, and Rothko.

The exhibition is organized at the Metropolitan Museum by Maryan Ainsworth, Curator in the Department of European Paintings, and an Oberlin College alumnus.

Following the exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, a collection of works from the Allen Memorial Art Museum will be on view at the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. for several months.

The Allen Memorial Art Museum, founded in 1917 at Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio, is in an Italian Renaissance-style building designed by Cass Gilbert and named after its founder, Dr. Dudley Peter Allen (B.A. 1875), a distinguished graduate and trustee of Oberlin College.

In 1977, Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates designed an addition that represents one of the earliest examples of postmodern architecture in the United States.
