About The Hyde Collection

A Message from Charles Guerin, Hyde director
Director's Greeting

imageWelcome to The Hyde Collection, a preeminent art museum located in upstate New York. 

Housed in an American Renaissance-style mansion and a modern Edward Larrabee Barnes addition, The Hyde Collection is a truly remarkable blend of the present with the past. We are a showcase for an extraordinary art collection ranging from the Old Masters to the most contemporary artists of our time. 

Our website is a preview of what you will experience when you visit us. Here you will learn about the vision of our founders, Charlotte Pruyn Hyde and her husband Louis Fiske Hyde, and their commitment to the arts of the past and present. You will enjoy our focus on the educational role we share with our visitors as you view works by Tintoretto, Rembrandt, Rubens, Ingres, Van Dyck, Degas, Picasso, Renoir, Hassam, Homer, and others in their original setting. 

In addition to the Hyde House, the Barnes Wing exhibits modern and contemporary art as part of its changing exhibition program. It also houses a wonderful auditorium for lectures and performances, and an innovative art studio to further our educational programs. 
When you visit, you can share Mrs. Hyde’s most cherished dream for the institution as a place for exploration, enlightenment, and delight; a place that can actually change lives. 
Please share our website with your friends and family. We hope to see you soon at The Hyde Collection.

With kind regards,
Charles Allan Guerin
Director, The Hyde Collection
