European Galleries

  • The European galleries feature painting, sculpture, decorative arts, textiles, and works on paper from the 11th to the 19th centuries. Objects in the Creamer Medieval Gallery are associated with religious devotion, pilgrimages, monasticism, and artistic guilds. The Creamer Early Renaissance Gallery presents a group of northern and southern European devotional paintings and sculpture and decorative objects that expand an understanding of the materials and techniques used by Renaissance masters. The Murray Skylight Gallery includes paintings by Tiepolo, Batoni, and Thomas Lawrence and a frieze by Tom Otterness, while a sequence of other galleries features 19th-century paintings by Manet, Morisot, Monet, Cézanne, Degas, and Van Gogh.
