Huntington Art Gallery

Huntington Art Gallery opened in 1928 displaying one of the greatest collections of 18th-century British art in the country, including the celebrated Blue Boy by Thomas Gainsborough and Pinkie by Thomas Lawrence. Since then the collections have grown enormously and now contain many great works of art of the Italian, French and Netherlandish schools, as well as a broader range of British art and design. The Huntington Art Gallery currently displays approximately 1,200 objects of European art from the 15th to the early 20th century. When the finishing touches were put on Henry E. Huntington’s San Marino villa in 1911, it was proclaimed one of the finest in Southern California, and a major achievement by architects Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey.
