Overview

Based in Glens Falls, NY, The Hyde Collection is a historic house and fine arts museum complex featuring works by European and American masters, including Botticelli, Rembrandt, Rubens, Degas, Renoir, and more.

History of The Hyde Collection

The Hyde Collection is home to a world-class collection that spans the history of western art from the 4th century BC through the 20th century. The museum's founders, Louis and Charlotte Hyde, acquired the majority of objects during a fifty-year period of avid and highly informed collecting. Many of these works are displayed in their home, known as Hyde House, as well as in galleries in the education wing.

When the Hydes began collecting, their focus was not unlike that of their contemporaries. They acquired Old Master paintings, drawings and sculptures by artists such as Botticelli, El Greco, Raphael, Rembrandt, and Rubens.

After the death of her husband in 1934, Mrs. Hyde continued to acquire new works. In fact, approximately two-thirds of the core collection reflect her personal decisions and taste. It was also during this time that she decided to broaden the scope of the collection.

To that end, she proceeded to purchase additional works by such modern masters as Cezanne, Degas, Picasso, Renoir, Seurat, and van Gogh. Concurrently, she assembled a significant group of works by important American artists including Eakins, Hassam, Homer, Peto, and Ryder.

While the majority of the objects comprising the permanent collection were the result of the efforts of Louis and Charlotte Hyde, the collection continues to grow through donations and acquisitions over the years.
