The Wadsworth Atheneum
The Wadsworth Atheneum is the oldest public art museum in the United States with significant holdings of French and American Impressionist paintings, Hudson River School landscapes, modernist masterpieces and contemporary works, as well as extensive holdings in early American furniture and decorative arts. In a distinctive castle-like building in downtown Hartford, Connecticut, the state's capital it is the museum is the largest art museum in the state.
