This is a full list of all of the artists represented in the online collection. Using this list will provide the best search results, particularly since names that include diacritical marks (e.g., “Paul Cézanne,” “Lázló Moholy-Nagy,” “Hiroshige Andô”) do not currently return results if they are typed with base characters (e.g., “e” for “é,” or “a” for “á”).

This filter includes nationalities that are well-represented in the collection as well as broader geographical regions. Note: “North America” comprises the United States, Canada, and Mexico. You may also enter more specific terms or keywords (e.g., “Congo,” “Philadelphia,” “American”) in the “Search the Collection” box at top.


The museum has great collection strength beginning in the 19th century, with areas of concentration in earlier periods. Note: the “Search the Collection” box at top does not currently return results for dates as search terms. The ranges here will return records with overlapping dates (e.g., “1930–1940” will return “1937,” “c. 1936–1970”).


Looking for particular types of objects? Wondering how many textiles we have in the collection, or especially interested in architectural drawings? Use this filter to narrow your search.


This filter allows you to narrow results by the curatorial departments of the museum. Note: While most of the museum’s holdings of photography are in the Photography Department, other departments collect photography as well, so use “Classification” to find all of these works in the collection.


Want to learn more about particular areas of collection strength? These are a sample of thematic groupings selected by the curators to highlight meaningful connections between works. We’ll continue to add to these over time.
