The collections concentrate on the following areas: turn-of-the-century French graphics; late 19th and early 20th century stained glass; 16th - 19th century Russian art; contemporary graphics; children's literature; Soviet nonconformist art, 1956-1986; and a survey of Western art from the 15th century to the present.
