Terra Collection in Focus

Samuel F. B. Morse’s painting Gallery of the Louvre (1831–33) is examined in 2012 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

The Terra Foundation continually re-envisions its collection of American art, conducts research, invites multiple interpretations, and employs advanced conservation practices to learn from and preserve nearly 800 paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, and sculptures from the 1750s to the 1980s. In this section, you’ll find video documentation and interpretation of works in the collection.
