DESCRIPTION

The past few years have marked a high point in the Fine Arts Museums’ acquisitions program, with many outstanding works of art joining the permanent collection. To showcase the highlights of our recent acquisitions, a small exhibition has been organized in the Barbara Carleton Gallery at the de Young. Here, you will see some of the finest acquisitions from all art departments of the Museums: American painting and sculpture, European painting and decorative arts, works on paper, textiles, ancient art, and art from Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.
