American Collection

The Hood Museum of Art has extensive holdings of American paintings, sculpture, prints and drawings, and decorative works of art. The primary strengths of the collection in painting are eighteenth and nineteenth-century portraits, with works by John Singleton Copley, Thomas Sully, Samuel F. B. Morse, and Thomas Eakins; and landscapes, particularly images depicting New Hampshire's White Mountains. The traditions of narrative and genre painting are represented in significant works by artists such as Lilly Martin Spencer, Eastman Johnson, and Frederic Remington. The collection also includes more than 1,500 watercolors and drawings and 4,000 prints made by American artists.
