The heart of any museum lies in its collection, and this is especially true at the Farnsworth. The collection includes works by Fitz Henry Lane, Winslow Homer, Charles Prendergast, George Bellows, Marsden Hartley, Rockwell Kent, Edward Hopper, John Marin, Georgia O’Keeffe, Louise Nevelson, Robert Indiana, Philip Pearlestein, Alex Katz, Richard Estes, Neil Welliver, and many others. Works by N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth are featured as well. With over 15,000 works, as is the case in most museums, only a small proportion of these holdings are on view at any one time, in part for preservation reasons.
The works in this presentation represent the diversity of the Farnsworth collection – with works spanning more than two centuries – as well as the inventiveness of the artists who have found Maine an inspiration for their work.
