The Academy Art Museum began its permanent collection in 1967 with a gift of eleven works on paper. Today, the permanent collection contains more than 1400 works chronicling more than two centuries of art.  The collection of works on paper presents a distinguished survey of prints and drawings from 1850 to present day, including American and European impressionists, the WPA and The Group of Eight.  Our collection of late 20th-century works has grown through donations and purchases to include works by Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Greg Mort, Robert Motherwell, Elizabeth Murray, Philip Pearlstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, James Rosenquist, Pablo Picasso, Jacob Kainen and Anne Truitt. In 2008 the Museum was selected as the Maryland recipient of The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States, launched by the National Gallery of Art.
