Collection Overview

The American Collection includes works from the Colonial period to 1945, with particular strengths in the 19th century landscape traditions of the Hudson River School artists Asher B. Durand, John Kensett, Albert Bierstadt and others. C. A. Ficke’s original gifts in this area have been enhanced by a number of generous donations including In the Wheatfield, by Winslow Homer, and In Gentle Slumber, by George Eastman.

The Midwest Regionalist Collection focuses on the works of Grant Wood, Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry and other Midwestern artists who defined this style in the 1930s and 1940s. The Figge’s Midwest Regionalist Collection boasts the only painted self-portrait of Grant Wood, whose enigmatic portrait of Midwesterners, American Gothic, is perhaps the most recognized painting in American art. A full-color catalogue featuring the work of Grant Wood and essays by the FAM curatorial staff is available through the Museum Shop.
