Recent Acquisitions from the Permanent Collection
The Permanent Collection of the Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators is one of the most comprehensive collections of this genre in the world. Comprised of over 3,500 works by many of the greatest names in illustration and comic and cartoon art, this celebrated collection is ever-expanding thanks to purchase and donation from our membership, art patrons and estates. These works are fully cataloged with portions of the collection constantly on rotating display.
As part of the Society’s educational mission, the Museum loans works to major exhibitions at such prestigious venues as the Brooklyn Museum, the American Federation of the Arts, the Norman Rockwell Museum and the Parrish Art Museum. Behind-the-scene tours are available by appointment.
