The Collection

 

Discover your community’s vast and growing art collection. Since 1881, the Cincinnati Art Museum’s commitment to the community and its members as a world-class art museum has inspired acquisitions and additions to its ever-changing collection of art.

One of the oldest arts institutions in the United States, the Cincinnati Art Museum has a rich collection of more than 65,000 works of art, spanning 6,000 years. This unique collection includes the ancient art of Egypt, Greece, and Rome as well as Near and Far Eastern art, art of Africa and the Americas, costume and textiles, prints, drawings, photographs, paintings, sculpture, decorative art, and contemporary art.

The painting collection includes works by European old masters such as Titian, van Dyck, Hals, Rubens, and Gainsborough, as well as nineteenth- and twentieth-century works by Picasso, Renoir, Derain, Braque, Modigliani, Miró, and Chagall. The American collection holds works by Copley, Cole, Harnett, Wyeth, Wood, Hopper, Diebenkorn, and Rothko, as well as major artists from the 1970s and 1980s.

Some of the Art Museum’s most notable gems include the only collection of ancient Nabataean art outside of Jordan, the renowned Herbert Greer French collection of old master prints, and a fine collection of European and American portrait miniatures.
