Througout the years, the Museum has acquired both individual works and collections which have made its American holdings among the most comprehensive in the Southeast. From Colonial period portraiture to contemporary, 20th-century American expressions of visual creativity in most every medium — the many aspects of American art are always on view at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.

The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts has one of the finest collections and facilities for the study of works on paper of any municipal museum in the country. The Museum holds works by artists from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century as part of its European print collection.
Many of the outstanding printmakers of art history are represented in the Museum’s collection — from fifteenth-century engravers such as Martin Schongauer and Albrecht Dürer to one of the world’s most beloved practitioners, Rembrandt van Rijn. Etchings by Canaletto, aquatints by Goya and lithographs by Whistler — the array of printmaking techniques and artists presents the rich heritage of this art form in Western culture.
