American Art

Selections from the museum's collections of historical American paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts are on view throughout the building. Currently masterworks of 19th century American landscape painting can be seen on the museum's third floor. Stop by to see outstanding examples by the country's leading painters of landscape: Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Church and Sanford Gifford.

The Seattle Art Museum acknowledges that we are located on the ancestral land of the Coast Salish people.
