Kreeger Museum

One of the greatest legacies of David and Carmen Kreeger is the Museum that bears their name. In 1959, the Kreegers began to amass a formidable collection of modern art. For the next fifteen years they assembled most of the Museum’s holdings. The Kreeger’s focus on 19th and 20th century paintings is evidenced by works by Monet, Picasso, Braque, Stella, Mitchell, and Frankenthaler, among others. Also included in the permanent collection are works by prominent Washington artists, including William Christenberry, Gene Davis, Sam Gilliam, Simmie Knox, and Paul Reed. Examples of African and Asian art are integrated in gallery spaces on both levels. Designed in 1963 by Philip Johnson and Richard Foster, the travertine-clad building sits on five acres and is surrounded by sculpture gardens and terraces.
