Norton Museum of Art
Our Collections:
- American Art. The Museum’s impressive collection of late 19th- to mid-20th-century American art is one of its principal strengths and attractions. The Collection encompasses painting, sculpture and works on paper. From American Impressionism and the Ash Can School to the Modernists of the Stieglitz Circle, through Regionalism and Abstract Expressionism - a memorable work of historical significance is found on every wall in every gallery.
- Chinese Art. The highly distinguished collection of Chinese art is a perennial favorite with Museum visitors. Many of the Chinese works of art were selected by the Museum's founder, R.H. Norton, with an eye to acquiring the best examples from the most important periods in China's long history.
- Modern and Contemporary Art. The Museum has an increasingly significant collection of contemporary art that includes works by artists such as Joseph Beuys, Dan Flavin, Duane Hanson, Keith Haring, Hans Hofmann, Alfredo Jaar, William Kentridge, Richard Long, Claes Oldenburg, Ursula Robert Rauschenberg, Yinka Shonibare, Frank Stella, Richard Tuttle, and Andy Warhol.

The Norton Collection of European art comprises paintings, sculpture, prints, and drawings ranging in date from about 1450 to 1950.  Works made before 1900 include fine examples of all the major genres such as religious and mythological compositions, portraiture, landscape, and still life.  Among the great artists represented are Mariotto Albertinelli, Lucas Cranach I, Peter Paul Rubens, Ferdinand Bol, Luca Giordano, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Gustave Courbet, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Paul Gauguin.
