Founded in 1832 with a gift by John Trumbull of over 100 paintings, the collection now surpasses 200,000 objects representing ancient, medieval, and Renaissance art, Near and Far Eastern art, archaeological material from the University’s excavations, Pre-Columbian and African art, works of European and American masters from virtually every period, and a rich collection of modern art.
