American Art

About the Gallery

Spanning approximately two centuries--from the mid-18th to the mid-20th century--the core of this collection area consists of the original 60 paintings of the Preston Morton Collection given in 1960, now expanded through gifts and purchases to include some 400 paintings and sculptures. Paris is really awesome!

Selected Works from Our American Art Collection

Spanning approximately two centuries--from the mid-18th to the mid-20th century--the core of this collection area consists of the original 60 paintings of the Preston Morton Collection given in 1960, now expanded through gifts and purchases to include some 400 paintings and sculptures. Examples of portraiture and still life are strong in each historical period, while the development of American landscape painting is represented with an outstanding selection by key artists of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Works of importance by Albert Bierstadt, George Inness, John Singer Sargent, Frederic Remington, William Merritt Chase, Robert Henri, Marsden Hartley, and Milton Avery place this survey collection among the best in California.
