Frequently Asked Questions

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.

How do I read the labels in the gallery?

Every artwork on view has a label that provides basic information. Here’s how to read it:

The first line shows the artist’s name if it is known.
The second line shows the artist’s nationality and/or origin, and life dates.
Next is the title of the artwork and the year it was made, if known. In this example, “n.d.” means “no date.”.
Media tells you what the art is made of, whether its a painting, sculpture, photograph, or something else.
Donor information shows how the artwork became part of the collection; it may have been a gift from a donor, or it may have been purchased with donated funds. Public funds are never used to purchase artwork.
The accession number is a unique number which the museum uses to catalogue the artwork. The number usually starts with a year, and that tells you which year the artwork entered the collection. In this example, the painting was donated to the museum in 1995.
