The Armand Hammer Collection
The UCLA Hammer Museum regularly presents selections from the Armand Hammer Collection, which features primarily Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings by such artists as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt and Vincent van Gogh. Exhibitions drawn from the Armand Hammer Daumier and Contemporaries Collection are also shown on a rotating basis and include painting, sculpture and lithography of 19th-century French artist Honoré Daumier and his contemporaries. These satirists confront the profound social and political change occurring in 19th-century France with stinging criticism of art and artists, literature, theater and the middle class.
UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts Collection
The Museum also displays exhibitions drawn from the extensive collection of the UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts, one of the finest university collections of graphic arts in the country. The Grunwald Center's holdings consist of over 35,000 works of art on paper including prints, drawings, photographs and artists' books from the Renaissance to the present. Among the artists represented are Albrecht Durer, Ishikawa Toyonobu, George Cruikshank, Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Barbara Morgan, Jasper Johns, June Wayne and Carlos Almaraz. A primary resource for teaching and research, the Grunwald Center serves UCLA students, faculty and the public and is available for scholarly study by appointment; call 310/443-7078.
