The Collection



The Albert M. Greenfield American Art Resource Online

With over 16,000 works, PAFA's ever-evolving and internationally renowned permanent collection ranges from 18th- and 19th-century masters Benjamin West, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, and Mary Cassatt, to modern and contemporary artists including Charles Demuth, Jacob Lawrence, Alice Neel, Mickalene Thomas, Andy Warhol, and Kehinde Wiley.

PAFA is committed to collecting the finest examples of historic, modern, and contemporary American art. The museum is especially interested in supporting women artists and artists often overlooked by the mainstream art world—artists of color, artists from regional, smaller art communities, and artists from the LGBT communities—with the belief that we can then tell a comprehensive and wholesome story about our cultural richness.
