Chrysler Museum of Art

Norfolk, Virginia: Housed in an Italianate-style structure facing the picturesque Hague Inlet of the Elizabeth River, the Chrysler Museum of Art is home to an encyclopedic collection of nearly 40,000 objects spanning nearly 5,000 years of history. Highlights include an impressive and comprehensive survey of European and American painting and sculpture, a world-renowned glass collection, a rich photography program, Art Nouveau furniture, as well as African, Asian, Egyptian, Pre-Columbian and Islamic art. In the words of New York Timesart critic John Russell, the Chrysler boasts objects "...any museum in the world would kill for."

Much of the Chrysler Museum of Art’s decorative arts collection was donated to the Museum by Walter P. Chrysler, Jr., but the collection also contains significant objects that were collected by the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences prior to Chrysler’s arrival and objects that have been collected subsequently. The museum houses a collection of Tiffany Studio favrile art glass, ceramics, stained glass windows, and lamps.
