National Academy Museum

 
The National Academy Museum, located along Museum Mile, is housed in a landmark turn of the century Beaux-Arts townhouse. Although the museum appears to be rather small, there is a lot of gallery space featuring the museum's vast collection of 19th and 20th century American Art. The gallery spaces, like the art on display, are rather traditional.

National Academy, Museum, Exhibitions,Arts in New York, NY
Visitors to the National Academy Museum find it one of New York City's special treasures.
The Academy is an honorary association of professional artists, that maintains a museum and an art school. A requirement of membership, which is by election only, is the contribution of a representative example of each artist's work. Since its founding in 1825, the Academy has amassed a rich collection of American paintings, sculpture, prints, and architectural representations forming a permanent collection of over 8000 works of nineteenth- through twenty-first century art. The museum presents exhibitions from its permanent collection as well as organizing major exhibitions, such as Surrealism USA, which traveled to the Phoenix Art Museum. Located in a beautiful Beaux-Arts townhouse on Fifth Avenue, the National Academy is one of the eight museums that comprise Museum Mile.
The School of Fine Arts provides instruction by an outstanding faculty, including Academicians, in painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, and more. Students at our School of Fine Arts encounter one of the most exciting unrestricted programs offered in this city. The National Academy Museum is a place that would appeal mostly to art students or people who have a dedicated interest in painting. After visiting two or three other museums on Museum Mile, this museum would probably be too much to absorb or appreciate.
The Academy houses one of the largest public collections of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art in the country.
It comprises over five thousand works in almost every artistic style of the past two centuries, from the linear portraiture of the Federal period and the naturalistic landscapes of the Hudson River School to studies of light and atmosphere that inform Tonalism and American Impressionism; from the gritty realism of the Ashcan movement to the modernist movements of Fauvism, abstraction, and photo- and magic-realism. Masterworks in these and other styles have come into the Academy's collection mainly as gifts from newly elected National Academicians in compliance with membership requirements; thereby continually enriching the collection.
The fundamental mission of the Academy has never changed-the annual exhibitions have been held every year since 1826; the School of Fine Arts has functioned almost without interruption since that date; and, in recognition of the ever-changing character of American art, over 2,000 artists have been honored with election.
