Description:

The strengths of the collections at the Shelburne Museum are showcased on its website in dedicated online galleries. By clicking on "Explore Collections" on the homepage, visitors can view these galleries, including a dozen American paintings by well-known artists including Andrew Wyeth and Grandma Moses; a pewter teapot, glass canes, and Wedgewood and Spode China in Decorative Arts; or eleven examples of 19th and 20th century quilts and hooked rugs. The Museum is also the home of the restored Steamboat Ticonderoga, and visitors can watch a short video about the boat. The Shelburne Museum was founded by Electra Havemeyer Webb, whose parents, the Henry O. Havemeyers, amassed one of the great collections of Impressionist paintings, many of which have come to the Shelburne, including a Mary Cassatt portrait, "Louisine Havemeyer and her Daughter Electra", 1895.
