Fine Arts

FineArtsThe fine arts department is responsible for paintings, sculpture, prints, and drawings made before 1945. Collection strengths include American and European art from 1860 to 1920, Japanese prints of the 19th and 20th centuries, Old Master prints from Albrecht Dürer to James Abbott McNeill Whistler, and classic American watercolors. The departmental collecting plan emphasizes selective additions to areas of strength and gradual diversification of the core collection of French and American paintings with works by artists of other nationalities or in other media.
