Collection Highlight: Prints, Photographs and 
Works on Paper

While the Art Museum’s collection includes works in all media, it is particularly strong in prints and other works on paper. The print collection is the museum’s largest with more than 1,400 works spanning from Rembrandt in the seventeenth century to Mary Cassatt in the nineteenth century and from Ellsworth Kelly, Louise Bourgeois, and William Kentridge in the twentieth century to Shepard Fairey, Mickalene Thomas, and Martin Puryear in the twenty-first century. Taken together, the prints in the museum’s collection show the history of printmaking, including some of the most innovative examples of the medium.
