Annenberg Collection

The Annenberg Collection of Impressionist and Postimpressionist Masterpieces

May 24–November 15, 2001

In an annual event, the fifty-three paintings, drawings, and watercolors that compose the Annenberg Collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterworks are once again on view. The collection, acknowledged as one of the most distinguished private collections of its kind, includes the work of eighteen of the greatest artists of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, among them Manet, Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, van Gogh, Gauguin, and Picasso. Assembled by the Honorable Walter H. and Leonore Annenberg, the collection is loaned generously by them to the Metropolitan for six months of every year.
