The Lehman Loeb Art Center’s collections chart the history of art from antiquity to the present and comprise over 19,000 works, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, textiles, and glass and ceramic wares. Collections include Antiquities, Asian, European Medieval and Renaissance art, as well as photography.
The Hudson River School of American painting is one of the richest areas of the permanent collection, holding paintings by many of the movement’s leading artists, including Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Frederic Church, Jasper Cropsey, and Sanford Robinson Gifford. Other notable collections include Old Master prints, and works by major European and American twentieth century painters.
In a Sculpture Garden that is an integral part of the Loeb Art Center, are works from Vassar’s collection of 20th-century sculpture.
