The Permanent Collection

The Clark’s permanent collection includes painting, sculpture, and decorative art from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century. The Institute’s greatest strengths lie in nineteenth-century European and American painting, especially French Impressionists. Although the collection has expanded greatly since the opening of the Clark in 1955, its scope and character continues to represent the taste and interests of Sterling and Francine Clark.

Works on Paper and British Art

The Manton Research Center, future home to the new Manton Study Center for Works on Paper, will include gallery space for regular exhibitions of prints, drawings, and photography spanning the history of the graphic arts from the fifteenth century through the first quarter of the twentieth century. It will also house gallery space featuring works from the Manton Collection of British Art
