Today, the Art Collection has a strong regional perspective including 19th and 20th century portraits of prominent Staten Islanders as well as landscapes by Staten Islanders. European and American artworks provide an historical framework for the Art Collection, including a portion of the Kress Collection of the Italian Renaissance. In addition to our larger American and European fine art aggregations, our collection includes African, Asian, and Native American Art from antiquity to the present day. The Works on Paper Collection is the largest in the art department, and contains works from such noted local artists as Frederic Cozzens, Cecil C. Bell and John Sloan. We also have works on paper by internationally celebrated artists such as John J. Audubon, Robert Indiana, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Marc Chagall and Andy Warhol.
