The Abbey Room, which can be entered from the south end of the Chavannes Gallery of the Boston Public Library McKim Building, was designed by artist Edwin Austin Abbey. The room, 64 feet long by 33 feet wide, features heavy ornamental rafters on the ceiling and is dominated by Abbey’s richly colored mural painting, The Quest of the Holy Grail.

The Boston Public Library McKim Building, located on Boylston Street between Dartmouth and Exeter Streets, was built in 1895 by Charles Follen McKim of McKim, Mead & White. Consisting of a three-story, monumental free-standing block in the style of an Italian Renaissance palace surrounding an open courtyard, McKim’s design was one of the earliest successful examples of Renaissance Beaux-Arts Classicism in America, and set the precedent for grand scale urban libraries. In 1972, the Philip Johnson-designed late modernist wing was added to the Central Library location. The Boston Public Library system, established in 1848, was the country’s first publicly supported municipal library, its first large library open to the public and its first to allow citizens to borrow books. There are currently twenty-six branches in the system.

In 2007, Boston Public Library was ranked #90 on the AIA 150 America’s Favorite Architecture list.
