There is so much to see!   With a collection of more than 260,000 art works and artifacts, the museum has particularly strong collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painting, early 20th century European painting and sculpture, contemporary art, Japanese prints, and photography.  Included in the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collection are more than 30 paintings by Claude Monet (six of his Haystacks and a number of Water Lilies), Pierre-Auguste Renoir (Two Sisters (On the Terrace)), Henri Matisse’s The Bathers, Paul Cézanne’s (The Basket of Apples, and Madame Cézanne in a Yellow Chair). At the Moulin Rouge by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is another highlight, as are Georges Seurat’s Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte and Gustave Caillebotte’s Paris Street; Rainy Day. Non-French paintings of the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collection include Vincent Van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles and Self-portrait, 1887. Among the most important works of the American collection are Grant Wood’s American Gothic, Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks and Mary Cassatt’s The Child’s Bath.
