Treasures of British Art 1400-2000: The Berger Collection features the most significant private collection of British art in the United States. Spanning six centuries, this exhibition presents 50 masterpieces from this collection in a variety of subjects, styles, and eras. The Berger Collection is rivaled only by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Yale Center for British Art in its holdings of British artworks from the 1500s and early 1600s. It’s truly one of the most unique private collections in the world, and we’re thrilled to have it at the PMA.

Located along the rugged coast of Prout's Neck, Maine, the Studio is where great American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived and painted many of his masterpieces from 1883 until his death. Now, fully renovated and restored, the Studio is open for guided tours through the PMA.
