Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute
Located in Williamstown, Massachusetts, in the picturesque Berkshire
Hills, the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is one
of only a few institutions in the United States that is both
a public art museum and a research and academic center supported
by a distinguished art library. The Clark’s permanent
collection is extraordinarily rich in 19-century French art,
with more than 30 paintings by Renoir and works by Monet, Degas,
and Pissarro. It also contains exceptional examples of European
and American paintings and sculpture, extensive collections
of master prints and drawings, English silver, and early photography.
The Clark’s other great strength is its role as an international
research center and incubator of new ideas in the visual arts.
