DESCRIPTION
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is an art museum in the USA. The museum was originally chartered in 1876 for the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The current main museum building was completed in 1928 on Fairmount, a hill located at the northwest end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at Eakins Oval. The museum administers collections containing over 240,000 objects including major holdings of European, American and Asian origin. The various classes of artwork include sculpture, paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, armour, and decorative arts.

HIGHLIGHTS
• The world’s largest and most important collection of works by Marcel Duchamp

• The greatest collection of sculpture by Constantin Brancusi outside Europe

• The finest public collection of Auguste Rodin’s sculpture in the United States

• Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, including Paul Cézanne’s The Large Bathers, Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers, and important paintings by Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, and Edgar Degas

• American painting, sculpture, furniture, silver, and ceramics—including the remarkable creations of the Shakers and Pennsylvania Germans—that reflect Philadelphia’s central role in American history

Several special exhibitions are held in the museum every year, including touring exhibitions arranged with other museums in the United States and abroad. The museum is one of the largest art museums in the world based on gallery space.
