Founded in 1916, the museum moved from its original turn-of-the-century Beaux Arts-style building to a unique structure created over time by three prominent architects.
Collections are comprised of 20th- and 21st-century works of modern and contemporary art as well as examples from the Renaissance, Impressionism, and post-Impressionism, and 18th- and 19th-century Japanese woodblock prints. The entire collection currently stands at more than 5,000 works art, of which approximately 4000 are works on paper.
