The Clark Art Institute is best known for its French Impressionist paintings by Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, and especially Pierre-Auguste Renoir, with more than thirty paintings by the artist. The collection is also rich in American paintings by Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, George Inness, Frederic Remington, and Mary Cassatt; Italian and Northern Renaissance masterpieces; portraits and landscapes by European masters; and an extraordinary collection of silver, porcelain, and furniture. In addition to its permanent collection, the Clark presents a series of special exhibitions. Open year-round, the museum links visitors to the striking landscape through a series of walking paths and trails; a tiered reflecting pool and outdoor terrace provide a relaxing view of the Berkshire hills.
