Since 1917, the Allen has promoted the study of original works of art. Always free to the public, the Allen has strong holdings in 17th century Dutch and Flemish art, Japanese woodblock prints, and 20th century works by such artists as Cézanne, Chagall, Picasso, Monet, and others. In the galleries you will find artworks from virtually every culture and time period. The museum’s collection of more than 15,000 works consistently ranks among the top five of any academic art museum in the nation.

The 1917 building designed by Cass Gilbert, an architect known for the Woolworth Building in New York City and the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, DC, employs the vocabulary of Tuscan Renaissance architecture to evoke inspirational European art of the past. A 1977 addition by Robert Venturi became one of the finest and earliest examples of postmodern architecture in the United States.
