Crocker Art Museum Review

Established in 1885, this esteemed art museum contains one of the finest collections of Californian art in the nation—two highlights include Sunday Morning in the Mines (1872), a large canvas by Charles Christian Nahl depicting the original mining industry, and the magnificent Great Canyon of the Sierra, Yosemite (1871), by Thomas Hill. The Crocker has exceptional holdings of master drawings as well as an impressive collection of international ceramics and works from Europe, Asia, and Africa. A huge contemporary wing was added in 2010 and regularly hosts outstanding traveling exhibitions. On view in 2015 are works by Toulouse-Lautrec, William S. Rice, David Ligare, and Armin Hansen.
