With a history dating back to 1888, the Milwaukee Art Museum's far-reaching Collection includes nearly 20,000 works from antiquity to the present. The Museum's permanent holdings include important collections of Old Masters and 19th- and 20th-century art. The Museum's collections of American decorative arts, German Expressionism, folk and Haitian art, and American art after 1960 are among the nation's finest.
Important artists represented include Nardo di Cione, Francisco de Zurbarán, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Winslow Homer, Auguste Rodin, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, Jóan Miro, Georgia O'Keeffe, László Moholy-Nagy, Cindy Sherman, Mark Rothko, Robert Gober, and Andy Warhol.
In 2001, the Museum completely renovated and remodeled its Collection galleries. Works from the Museum's Collection are now exhibited in brighter, larger, more spacious galleries, and primarily organized chronologically, all of which make it easier for visitors to navigate through art, history, and the Museum.
