WORKS ON PAPER
Works on paper make up the museum's single largest core collection. The collection was established in 1957 with a bequest of more than 150 American prints from the estate of Edward Coykendall, Many of the prints are by artists from the Hudson Valley and Catskill regions. The Coykendall collection laid the foundation for, and stimulated the museum's interest in, formally addressing the cultural heritage of the region. This focus complements a more comprehensive teaching collection ranging from the 15th through the 20th century that is international in scope, with a strong emphasis on modern and contemporary American and European posters and drawings representing the major art movements of the 20th centuries.
