Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Portrait of Anthony J. Drexel
Artist: Jean Joseph Benjamin Constant (1845-1902)
Creation Date: 1894
Origin: United States
Medium: Oil, canvas

Anthony J. Drexel (1826-1893) was the founder of Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry. He was not a self-promoter and was notorious for not wanting his portrait done and in many of our portraits he looks somewhat uncomfortable. He was persuaded by his lifelong friend and businessman George W. Childs to do this painting, but it could not be hung after his death. This painting painted by the French artist Jean Joseph Benjamin Constant (1845-1902) is now hanging in the Paul Peck Alumni Center.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
