Nearly one quarter of the 9,713 objects in the Clark’s collection were acquired from 1995–2015. An Eye for Excellence focuses on some the finest acquisitions the museum has made during this period, considering how these objects came into the Clark’s collection and telling the stories of discriminating donors and collectors whose private collections are now held by the Clark.
The exhibition includes paintings, decorative arts, sculpture, prints, drawings, and photographs from the early sixteenth century through the early twentieth century. A group of rarely exhibited late twentieth and early twenty-first century artists’ books from the Clark library is also presented in the exhibition
