The Hyde Collection
The Hyde Collection Trust was founded in 1952 by Charlotte Pruyn Hyde, a Gilded Age collector who shared her art collection and home with the public. The Museum opened in 1963, after her death. The Hyde’s core collection, acquired by Mrs. Hyde and her husband, Louis, includes works by such artists as Sandro Botticelli, El Greco, Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, Edgar Degas, Georges Seurat, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes, Pablo Picasso, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, as well as American artists Thomas Eakins, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, and James McNeill Whistler. The Museum’s collection of Modern and Contemporary art features works by artists including Josef Albers, Dorothy Dehner, Sam Gilliam, Adolph Gottlieb, Grace Hartigan, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, George McNeil, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, and Bridget Riley. Today, the Museum includes the historic house and a modern wing with five galleries, and innovative programming to inspire with art.
