Selections from Trinity College Art Collection

The mission of the Trinity College Art Collection is to support teaching using original works of art, to preserve works of art entrusted to the Trustees of Trinity College, and to document and make such works accessible for study to students, faculty and the public.

 Assembled largely from gifts by alumni and other donors, the Trinity College Art Collection spans a diverse range of objects and time periods.  Represented primarily by individual permanent collections, holdings encompass more than 4,000 objects.

 Included are 14th-16th Century European paintings from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation Study Collection, 18th-19th Century Japanese woodblock prints from the Philip Kappel Collection of Prints, Trinity College Presidential Portraits, the Edwin Blake Memorial Collection, the George Chaplin Collection, and the Edith A. Graham Collection of Haitian Art.

 Various works from the Collection are on view in public buildings throughout campus and in special exhibitions in the College’s Widener Gallery.
