The Phillips Collection


The Phillips Collection invites visitors to experience an extraordinary collection ranging from masterpieces of French impressionism and American modernism to art of the present day.

The museums founder, Duncan Phillips, used words like enchantment, joy-giving, and life-enhancing when he wrote about the experience of seeing art. By displaying superb modern works in an intimate setting, he hoped to encourage visitors to appreciate new, even challenging, forms of artistic expression.

Unusually for his time, Phillips saw American modern artists as fully equal to their European counterparts, often hanging their works side by side.

Today, the museums collection includes nearly 3,000 works by American and European artists�among them, Degas, C�zanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, Bonnard, Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Klee, Homer, Whistler, Hopper, Stieglitz, OKeeffe, Calder, Rothko, and many others. New pieces continue to be added, including a significant number of photographs in recent years.
