UMMA Collections

European Art

European art, ranging from the late medieval period to the present is represented through all media within the Museum’s collections—painting, sculpture, decorative arts, and works on paper. Carved ivories, enamels and sculpture of the Middle Ages are among the earliest works in this portion of the collections, which also includes Italian renaissance panel paintings, Flemish genre paintings, and both religious and secular imagery by Baroque artists such as Philippe de Champagne and David Teniers. The collection also has important holdings of sculpture, metalwork, ceramics, and textiles. Academic and avant-garde painting of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are represented by artists such as Natoire, Perronneau, Bouguereau, Delacroix, and Monet.
