Hartford art patron Daniel Wadsworth (1771-1848) founded the Wadsworth Atheneum to share the wonders of art with the public. America’s oldest public art museum, the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art has a rich and diverse collection of European art, featuring approximately 900 paintings, 500 sculptures, 800 drawings, and 3,000 British and Continental prints. Paintings on display represent periods ranging from late medieval through the mid-twentieth century. Especially impressive are Baroque paintings, including masterworks by Caravaggio, Hals, van Dyck, and Claude Lorrain.
Nineteenth century artists, particularly those working in France, are amply featured and include significant works by Degas, Cézanne, Renoir, Monet, Manet, van Gogh, Theodore Rousseau, Courbet, Boudin, and Sisley
