Baltimore Museum of Art Archives

Overview

ARTstor has collaborated with the Baltimore Museum of Art to share approximately 100 photographs of exhibition installations, including archival photographs of works from the permanent collection and from the historical Cone Collection.

The Baltimore Museum of Art has an internationally recognized collection of 19th-century, modern, and contemporary art. It is best known for the Cone Collection of 3,000 objects bequeathed by Claribel and Etta Cone, two Baltimore sisters who collected 500 works by Henri Matisse as well as masterpieces by Pablo Picasso, Paul CÚzanne, and Vincent van Gogh. The museum's impressive collection of contemporary art includes important examples of Abstract Expressionism, Minimalist sculpture, and Pop Art with many late works by Andy Warhol, as well as major acquisitions of more recent work by artists such as Olafur Eliasson and Kara Walker. The museum also boasts an internationally renowned collection of prints, drawings, and photographs from the 15th century to the present; European masterpieces by Sandro Botticelli, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Sir Anthony van Dyck; distinguished American painting, sculpture, and decorative arts; one of the most important African collections in the country; and notable examples of art from the Ancient Americas, Asia, and the Pacific Islands. The BMA's Sculpture Gardens feature a 100-year survey of modern and contemporary sculpture on nearly three landscaped acres in the heart of the city.
