A collection that’s easy to appreciate.
The Westmoreland is home to a preeminent collection of American paintings, sculpture and early 19th century furniture. Behold portraits, landscapes and still lifes from nationally recognized American artists. Decorative objects like Redware and Salt-glazed stoneware. Corner cupboards and blanket chests made in Pennsylvania. And more.
Our collection includes the works of famous American artists like Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, and more. The lush Pennsylvania landscapes of George Hetzel, Charles Linford and Joseph Woodwell. Plus, powerful scenes from our region’s coal and steel industry.
After our grand reopening, the scope of our permanent collection, in terms of eras represented, expanded with a new collection of post 1950s works gifted to the Museum by Diana and Peter Jannetta. The new Scaife Collection added significantly to our late 19th and early 20th century collection with works by the famed John Kane.
The Westmoreland is part of the fabric of our region. We are the only museum dedicated to American art in western Pennsylvania and one of only three in the state.
