The Drexel Collection

The Drexel Collection, the University’s flagship collection of art, was founded alongside the University in 1891 on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. Today, the Collection and its curators remain a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art.

The focus of the Collection is primarily 19th century European art. The Collection currently boasts more than 6,000 works of art, including paintings, sculpture, European prints and drawings, Japanese woodblock prints, porcelain, furniture, silver, clocks and watches.

The Collection is displayed in three galleries on the University City campus and throughout the Main Building, the Queen Lane Campus and Center City Campus.
