Painting and Sculpture
The de Saisset Museum's collection began with nearly 100 paintings by the museum's namesake, Ernest de Saisset. Today, our collection of paintings and sculpture primarily includes works by 20th century and contemporary artists, many of whom have strong connections to California and the Bay Area.
Highlights of the painting and sculpture collection include pieces by Fletcher Benton, David Gilhooly, Valentin Popov, Henrietta Shore, and Brian Wall.
Several sculptures from our collection are permanently installed outdoors as part of our growing Public Art program.
