An inaugural exhibition will showcase more than 200 works from the Fieldings’ collection of 18th- and early 19th-century American art works, including paintings, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, metal, needlework, and other related decorative arts. Some of the objects are promised gifts to The Huntington. In its rich diversity, the Fielding Collection offers a rare opportunity to explore early American history through objects made for daily use and through images of the people who used them.

With this expansion of the Scott Galleries (the third since 2009), The Huntington is now home to one of the largest displays of historical American art in the Western United States.
