The Kreeger Museum
2401 Foxhall Road NW, Washington, DC 20007 - United States
The Kreeger Museum is an art museum and the former residence of Carmen and David Lloyd Kreeger. The Museum’s collection is mainly comprised of works from the 1850s to the present, with an emphasis on Impressionism, European modernism, and contemporary painting and sculpture and featuring works by Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Paul Cézanne, Joan Miró, James Rosenquist, Sam Gilliam, and Frank Stella. Also included in the permanent collection are outstanding examples of traditional African and Asian art.
In addition to the inside gallery space, art lives outside the Museum. The Sculpture Terrace displays works by Arp, Maillol, Moore, and Noguchi. Works by contemporary artists Kendall Buster, Dalya Luttwak, and Foon Sham grace the Sculpture Garden. The Museum building was designed by Philip Johnson and is among the few examples of his work in Washington.
