Artwork Collection Gallery

This digital gallery displays just a few of the pieces in the Brick Store Museum’s art collection.

The Museum’s American artwork collection spans from the late 18th Century to the mid-20th Century. It is composed of over 350 paintings (including oil on canvas, watercolors, and pastels); more than 200 prints, including 160 World War I and II American propaganda posters (the largest public collection in New England); nearly 60 pieces of sculpture (materials include bronze, clay, and wood) and at least 600 drawings (including pencil, colored pencil, charcoal and pen and ink).

The collection totals over 1,100 pieces in all, and includes the largest collection of Abbott Fuller Graves (1859-1936) outside private ownership; the only museum collection of Edith Cleaves Barry work in the world; and significant collections of work by Louis D. Norton (1868 – 1940), Thomas Badger (1792-1868), Hannah Browne Skeele (1829 – 1901), Charles Henry Granger (1812 – 1893), Walter Ingalls (1805 – 1874), Charles Octavius Cole (1814 – 1858), and prolific deaf artist John Brewster, Jr. (1766 – 1854). In addition to 19th Century artwork, the Museum actively collects 20th Century and modern Maine artwork, including works by Peggy Bacon, Cissy Buchanan, and Mildred Burrage, among others.
