About the Collection
The Fairfield University Art Museum encompasses galleries for the permanent collection and rotating exhibitions in Bellarmine Hall, and the Walsh Gallery for larger special exhibitions in the Quick Center for the Arts. The small but choice permanent collection features European and American paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs — including a core group of 10 Italian Renaissance and Baroque paintings from the Samuel H. Kress Collection — as well as as well as a group of Asian, African, and Pre-Columbian objects. This is augmented by antiquities and medieval works on long-term loan from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Penn Museum, the Worcester Art Museum, and the American Numismatic Society, as well as Asian art on loan from the Columbia University Collection and European paintings and objects borrowed from private collections.
