The collection is especially rich in masterworks of the Hudson River School, with canvases by Frederic Edwin Church, Sanford Robinson Gifford, and John Frederick Kensett; portraits of artists, including Thomas Cole, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Cecilia Beaux, and Thomas Eakins; late nineteenth-century American sculpture, with bronzes by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Daniel Chester French, Anna Hyatt Huntington, Paul Manship; and paintings by the American Impressionists and Tonalists such as George Inness, Childe Hassam, William Merritt Chase, and Frederick Frieseke.
