The Greenville County Museum of Art is home to a nationally acclaimed collection of American art that ranges from Federal portraits to contemporary works, including major holdings of work by two of the greatest artists in the nation's history, Andrew Wyeth and Jasper Johns.
Andrew Wyeth: The Greenville Collection is now the largest and the most complete collection of Andrew Wyeth watercolors owned by any public museum in the world and includes such highlights as Four Poster and Whale Rib.
The GCMA also owns an extensive collection of prints and paintings by America's most renowned contemporary artist, Jasper Johns, who grew up in South Carolina.
The GCMA's permanent collection explores the breadth of American art through the Southern experience from the colonial era to the present. Among the highlights of the Southern Collection are an exceptional group of pre-Civil War vessels created by the enslaved African-American potter and poet David Drake, an extensive collection of American Impressionism, and an array of works by such twentieth-century masters as Georgia O'Keeffe, Romare Bearden, and Andy Warhol. In addition, the GCMA is home to an important collection of modernist works by South Carolina native African-American artist William H. Johnson.
