The Frederic C. Hamilton Collection

A key feature of The 19th Century in European and American Art is a collection of more than 20 Impressionist paintings, including four works by Claude Monet and the first paintings by Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Cézanne to enter the museum’s collection, generously bequeathed by Frederic C. Hamilton in 2014. This was the largest gift of French Impressionist paintings the museum has ever received.
