Painting & Sculpture
The painting and sculpture collection at the de Saisset Museum primarily includes works from the modern and contemporary eras.
The de Saisset serves as the repository for paintings by Ernest de Saisset, a former student at Santa Clara College and an ambitious young painter. Funded by a bequest from de Saisset's youngest sister Isabel, the Museum is named after Ernest de Saisset.
Other highlights among our painting and sculpture collection include works by critically acclaimed painter Henrietta Shore as well as Bay Area contemporary artists Bruce Beasley, Fletcher Benton, Nathan Oliveira, Harry Powers, Rick Soss, and Peter VandenBerg.
