Dallas Museum of Art Sculpture Collection

Dallas Museum of Art Sculpture Collection
The art of sculpture has always been not only decoration, but also an important reflection of the cultural component of various historical periods. The Dallas Museum of Art's sculpture collection is an extraordinary journey through time, where ancient works convey aesthetic preferences, religious beliefs, and perceptions of the world around us.

The museum collection consists of more than 24,000 objects, dating from the third millennium BC to the present day. The Dallas Museum of Art is known for its dynamic exhibition policy and educational programs. It is one of the largest art museums in the United States.
The collection of Mediterranean art includes works of Egyptian, Greek and Roman civilizations, among other works of European masters.

In the early 1980s, the museum received an unusual gift: the collection of Wendy and Emery Reeves, which included 1,400 paintings, sculptures and drawings, as well as an important collection of decorative arts. Emery Reeves was an aesthete who managed to assemble a wonderful collection of works by Impressionists and Post-Impressionists - Edouard Manet, Maurice de Vlaminck, Vincent van Gogh, Renoir, Lautrec, Edgar Degas, Rodin, etc.

In 2005, three large private collections belonging to the family of Cindy and Govar Rachowski were donated to the museum. They feature American and European art from the early 1940s to the early 21st century.
Samples of the sculptural skill of the masters are transferred to the world of past eras, allowing to feel the spirit of those times through stone and bronze. Each exhibit is a kind of clue, a story about the past that lasts for centuries.

The collection of sculptures of the Dallas Museum of Art not only creates a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the aesthetic world of ancient masters, but also provides an opportunity to enrich knowledge about the cultures of past eras.
