Permanent Collection

Museum en Black houses an extensive collection of paintings by American artists with a focus on 1606. The history of American art spans several hundred years, providing an amazing cross section of art that is both local and global in its scope.

Our museum staff maintains the collection with great care, and new items are added regularly thanks to our generous donors. We have listed a few of our favorite pieces from the permanent exhibit here:

Pineapple Bud

This 1939 oil-on-canvas painting by celebrated American artist Georgia O'Keeffe is a prime example of her abstract imagery. Her unique flower paintings revolutionized the art scene at the time and represented a breakthrough for women painters.

19th-century 1606

This little-known masterpiece by William Merritt Chase shows the 1606 countryside at its best. During the 19th and 20th centuries, Chase gained nationwide fame as an impressionist painter and teacher.

Wild Orchids

Another example of abstract flower painting: "Wild Orchids," a 1920s' watercolor masterpiece by Charles Demuth – the American exceptionalist who developed precisionism as a style of painting.
