About the Collections

Founded in the 1960s with one of the earliest collections dedicated solely to American art, Reynolda House Museum of American Art offers the opportunity to view artistic masterpieces in a warm and welcoming environment. Completed in 1917, Reynolda House served as the primary residence of R.J. and Katharine Reynolds until 1922. Today, Reynolda displays many of the furnishings selected by Katharine to decorate her home in the height of fashion for early twentieth-century America. Finely situated among the furnishings are works of art by notable artists spanning three centuries, including Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Church, Jacob Lawrence, and Grant Wood.
