Fine Art Collection
Breathtaking panoramas of Yosemite Valley, including one that was once on loan to the White House, are among twelve paintings in the museum’s art collection by American artist Albert Bierstadt. Other large landscape paintings by artists such as George Inness, William Keith, Thomas Moran, and Julian Rix enhance the museum’s collection of 19th century American Art.
Also on display in the museum’s fine art galleries are paintings by late 19th to early 20th-century European artists. Highlights include works by the great animal painter Rosa Bonheur, the Neoclassical artist William Bouguereau, the popular French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and many more.
