Maryland, USA:

Founded in 1914, The Baltimore Museum of Art is Maryland's largest art museum with more than 85,000 objects ranging from ancient mosaics to contemporary art. The Museum presents a variety of major traveling exhibitions each year as well as special installations that showcase the Museum's incomparable collection in engaging ways. The Cone Collection-the BMA's pre-eminent holdings of Post-Impressionist and modern art-is one of the most celebrated art collections in the world. It includes a group of 500 works by Matisse, considered the largest and most comprehensive holding of his art in the world, as well as major examples by Picasso, Cézanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, and Renoir. The BMA also has grand European paintings and sculpture from the Renaissance to the 19th century; remarkable African, Native American, and Oceanic art; exquisite Maryland period rooms; fine galleries of European, American, and Asian decorative arts and textiles; and a significant collection of prints, drawings, and photographs from the 15th century to the present. The West Wing for Contemporary Art houses the BMA's expanding and diverse collection of post-1945 art and the 2.7-acre sculpture garden is one of the largest in the U.S. The BMA is also recognized for dynamic school programs that reach more than 30,000 students each year and for imaginative interactive programs such as Art+Fun Packs that allow families to explore the Museum through costumes, songs, and sketchbooks.
