Art Collections

The art collections include extraordinary examples of decorative arts and folk art, paintings, prints and drawings, photography, and sculpture displayed in the Huntington Art Gallery, the original home of Henry and Arabella Huntington, in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art, and in the Studio for Lodging the Mind.

The Huntington's European art collection encompasses a broad range of styles, cultures and media, from antiquity to the twentieth century featuring one of the most significant collections of British art outside the United Kingdom.

The Huntington is home to thirty-one galleries of American art, ranging from the early colonial period to the present and representing painting, sculpture, photography, film, decorative arts, architecture, and textiles.

The Asian art collections at the Huntington are heterogenous, ranging from small collections of Chinese export wares to rare Chinese books and paintings, and Japanese ceramics.
