    Welcome to our collection online, where you’ll find a wealth of information about many of the objects in our rich holdings. We hope these pages will inspire you to explore further—both here and in our galleries.

    For a variety of reasons, including conservation concerns and the lending of works to other institutions, not all the objects illustrated here are on view at any one time. You can find the location of specific objects by accessing their individual records.

    We’re continually expanding the number of works included here and making sure the information about each object is as up-to-date as possible. If you have information we should know about in connection with any of the objects you see, we would be happy to hear from you.
