The Walters American Collection

Time
10:00 AM–05:00 PM on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
The Walters American Collection

While strong in many types of art, the Walters has only a relatively small number of American works.  William Walters first collected American art, but, while living abroad, he became interested in European art and sold most of his American holdings.  Henry Walters acquired some American works, but he never consistently tried to expand his collecting in this field.  Since opening as a public museum in 1934, the Walters has been given paintings by American artists, many of which were once displayed in the parlors of William Walters' Baltimore contemporaries.  This small exhibition featured 14 paintings by American artists.
