Museum Website

Founded in 1914 with a single painting, today there are 95,000 objects in the collection of 18th- and 19th-century, modern, and contemporary art — including the largest holding of works by Henri Matisse in the world.

The collection includes American and European painting, sculpture, and decorative arts; prints and drawings from the 15th century to the present; works by established and emerging contemporary artists; and art objects from Africa and Asia. Two beautifully landscaped gardens display an array of 20th-century sculpture.

The BMA is located in a historic building designed in the 1920s by renowned American architect John Russell Pope.
