The GCMA is home to the largest public collection of watercolors by American artist Andrew Wyeth, and also holds a notable collection of paintings and prints by contemporary South Carolina artist Jasper Johns.
Ranging from Federal pastel portraits (1726) and Civil War vistas, to American Impressionism, Abstract Expressionism, American Scene, and contemporary works, the GCMA’s Southern Collection surveys American art history through art with ties to the South.
