The National Museum of American Illustration

Newport, Rhode Island: The Collection has been assembled over a thirty-year period and is comprised of the finest American illustration art works extant; including the largest collection of originals by Maxfield Parrish, the largest private collection of Norman Rockwell, the largest JC Leyendecker collection, Howard Pyle ("Father of American Illustration"), NC Wyeth, Charles Dana Gibson, James Montgomery Flagg, Jessie Willcox Smith, Howard Chandler Christy, Violet Oakley, John Falter, Alton Tobey, and many others. In its entirety, the Collection comprises original art works, prints (open and limited editions), significant memorabilia, vintage materials, artifacts (such as Rockwell’s first paint box and Parrish’s stippling paint brushes) and a plethora of photographic materials. We exhibit over 135 works at a time much like The Frick Collection, the Borgehese Gallery in Rome, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. An on-going rotation of art will complement the permanent portion of the Collection on perpetual display. Our five new galleries on the Courtyard Level now offer us the opportunity to exhibit illustrations from other periods.


The museum also exhibits decorative arts, such as authentic period furnishings, in order to enhance the experience of viewing the art works. Items newly acquired by the Museum include a stunning Tiffany Studios table lamp, titled "Turning Acorn."
