Statement of Purpose:
Collection of 19th through 21st century American art, also shows
special international exhibitions. The Academy also has New York’s
oldest School of Fine Arts.
Highlights & Collections:
Since its inception in 1825, the National Academy of Design--a museum,
an association of artists, and New York's oldest school of fine
arts--has been actively developing a collection of American art. With
almost 7,000 paintings and sculptures, the Academy's collection is one
of the largest and most important assemblages of American art held by
any institution in the world. Through the past 171 years its artist
members, faculty, and students have included many of America's most
respected artists, such as Frederic Edwin Church, Thomas Cole, and
Winslow Homer. The Academy's collection is a reflection of most of the
major and minor movements and styles of American art from the early
19th century to the present.
The Academy's home, a landmark Beaux-Arts town house on Fifth Avenue
is also a rich reflection of the institution's history. Originally, the
home to noted sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington, NA, the 1901 townhouse
was given to the Academy by Mrs. Huntington and her husband, railroad
heir and scholar Archer Huntington in 1940. Its stunning interiors,
designed by gilded age architect Odgen Codman, Jr., provides an
exquisite backdrop for the viewing the collection.
With its exhibitions, the Academy celebrates its collection and its
role as an organization that has fostered American art for nearly two
