Recent Acquisitions

The collection of the North Carolina Museum of Art is dynamic and growing under the guidance of a dedicated staff of curators. The curators, possessing a deep knowledge of the Museum’s art collection as well as the global art market, seek out new acquisitions that strengthen the collection’s survey of art history and enhance its overall quality. Acquisitions are made primarily by purchase with museum funds or by gift through the generosity of donors. This section lists some of the most important art acquisitions made by the NCMA in the last several years.
