Collection


The Muscarelle Museum of Art features a range of exhibitions and programs that focus on the cultural landscape of the community with a permanent collection that is central to the function of the Museum as a laboratory for the study of art. The collection features more than 5,000 works acquired through generous donations.

The Muscarelle Museum of Art collection began with the donation of a portrait of the physicist, Robert Boyle from the third Earl of Burlington in 1732 and has since grown to over five thousand works of art. The collection as it stands today encompasses a diverse array of works from antiquity to the present, including both Eastern and Western art, Colonial American art, and German Expressionist works. Highlights of the collection include English portraits from the 17th and 18th century, prints and drawings from the 15th to the 20th century by American and European artists, German Expressionist works, a selection of Japanese prints, and a collection of American modern oils, watercolors, and sculptures.
