American Collection

The Museum’s American art collection encompasses paintings and sculpture from the late colonial period (mid-18th century) to the advent of modern art in the early 20th century, beginning with three imposing portraits by John Singleton Copley, the country’s first great artist, and concluding with a vibrant group of paintings by the leading American impressionists.
