Headquartered in Chicago, at 120 East Erie Street, the Terra Foundation for America Art is a philanthropic institution with a mission of sharing the historical art of the United States with audiences across the globe. Implicit in all of our undertakings is a belief that art has the potential both to distinguish cultures and to unite them.
The Terra Foundation collection reflects the rich artistic and cultural heritage of the United States from the 1750s to the 1980s. It includes more than 750 paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, and sculptures by 242 artists.
The Terra Foundation Paris Center & Library, located at 121 rue de Lille, serves as the hub of the foundation's European activities, hosting a growing international community of art historians and scholars.
The Terra Foundation Library of American Art specializes in art from the eighteenth century to 1980. A unique partnership with the Fondation Custodia provides access to a shared reading room and combined holdings of approximately 150,000 volumes on Western art history.
