American Art Collection

The American Art Collection includes outstanding works of art from the 19th and 20th centuries and provides museum visitors an opportunity to learn about the achievements of American artists during this time.  Themes that address nature and landscape, rural life, urbanization, and social changes are reflected in these works as are such artistic styles as the Hudson River School, Impressionism, Realism, and Modernism. Selections from this collection are on view in year-round exhibitions, and they serve as a foundation for the museum’s award-winning educational programming.

The American Art Collection has grown due to early and continued interest by the museum’s membership and the community at large. In 1993, the Orlando Museum of Art’s Friends of American Art was formed to support the collection with annual membership dues used to fund new acquisitions. Highlights of the collection include paintings by George Inness, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Richard Diebenkorn, sculptures by Daniel Ridgeway Gould, Frederick MacMonnies and Hermann McNeal, and photography by Ansel Adams, Margaret Burke White, and Alfred Eisenstadt.
