The collection in Artstor represents highlights from the museum's permanent collection of more than 30,000 objects. Encyclopedic in scope, the museum's collection encompasses works from all cultures and across all time periods. The museum's holdings are particularly strong in a number of areas, including Oceanic art, Pre-Columbian art, ancient Chinese bronzes, and European and American art from the late 19th and 20th centuries, particularly 20th century German art.

Founded in 1879, the Saint Louis Art Museum is one of the leading comprehensive art museums in the country. The museum's building was originally designed by architect Cass Gilbert as the Palace of Fine Arts for the 1904 World's Fair and bears the inscription "Dedicated to Art and Free to All." The dedication reflects the museum's long-standing commitment to free admission and providing access to its collections and programs to a broad public audience.
