The European collection was inaugurated with the gift of a group of 100 Old Master paintings from newspaper magnate James Scripps in 1889. After years of steady growth the collection achieved international stature with the arrival of director William Valentiner in 1924. Under his direction and with the support of numerous benefactors an outstanding group of works from artists such as Della Robbia Bellini Titian Rembrandt Rubens Rodin and many others was assembled. In 1970 Robert H. Tannahill bequeathed his collection of paintings from the 1800 s which included a strong core of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works that significantly enriched the European collection. With ongoing acquisitions the collection continues to grow in both breadth and depth every year.
