Recent Acquisitions

Elena Brockmann, Philip II Receiving the News of the Loss of the Invincible Armada, 1895; Members' Acquisition Fund

A gift of 500 artworks from Wallace and Wilhelmina Holladay formed the core collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts when it opened in 1987.

Subsequent gifts from the Holladays, together with the generous support of members and other donors, have enabled the museum to expand the depth and diversity of its collection. Museum holdings now total more than 4,500 works of art created by women artists from around the world.

Acquisitions often serve to enhance our holdings by a particular artist or of a particular type of object. It is possible to encounter new works on every visit to the museum.
