Since its founding, with 11 works of art, the collection has grown to more than 1,000 pieces, including core holdings of European and American works on paper.
The Museum’s permanent collection includes paintings by Gene Davis and Anne Truitt, among others, and is especially strong in works paper by modern American and European masters. The Museum holds drawings, photographs, and prints by artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Robert Rauschenberg, and Martin Puryear, to name just three prominent individuals. The Academy Art Museum enjoys close professional relationships with the National Gallery of Art, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Walters Art Museum, which have allowed the Museum to present exceptional exhibitions based on the collections of those outstanding institutions.
