European Art

Paintings and decorative objects from Europe form a large part of the permanent collection of the Huntington Museum of Art. From richly decorated silver objects from Great Britain to elaborately produced art glass from France to fine paintings and drawings by artists such as Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Jean Francois Millet, Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, these works demonstrate the great artistic genius that has emanated from the lands of Europe.
