European Collections


Author(s):
Abstract:
The North Carolina Museum of Arts’ collection of European paintings is one of the finest and most important in the United States. The history of the collections’ acquisition and rationale for collection is detailed from the 1940s through the 1960s. Until the opening of the new museum, the collection was primarily viewed outside of North Carolina due to a lack of space at the old museum. Beginning September 10, the European paintings will be on view in a series of sequential galleries in the new museum after restoration work in the museum's new conservation laboratory.
