Art Resource is proud to announce that it has been chosen to function as the rights and permissions representatives for works of art at the Newark Museum in Newark, New Jersey.
The Museum's very extensive collections contain strong holdings of American Art, in particular of American paintings from the 18th through the 20th centuries. These include numerous 19th century works by Albert Bierstadt, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Thomas Eakins, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Frederic Church, Thomas Cole, Edward Hicks, and Childe Hassam.
Among 20th century works to be found at the Museum are Joseph Stella's views of New York City, Arshile Gorky's murals for the Newark airport, and outstanding examples of the oeuvre of Edward Hopper, Romare Bearden, Georgia O'Keeffe, Stuart Davis, Ben Shahn, Reginald Marsh, Isabel Bishop, Alexander Calder, and Marsden Hartley.
Furthermore, the Museum has an important collection of Decorative Arts, which includes textiles and quilts, silver and jewelry, as well as ceramics and glass.
Also of particular note is the Museum's collection of Tibetan Art and artifacts, which were assembled during the early 20th century.
