By 1986, when the Amon Carter celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary, its collection had expanded from Mr. Carter’s collection of 400 works to nearly 6,400 objects.

Amon G. Carter’s personal collection of sculpture included over 100 works by Remington and Russell in materials ranging from bronze to wax and plaster. But in its first decade of operation the Carter actively began collecting a broader range of American sculpture. Today, the collection houses works by Alexander Calder, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Elie Nadelman, Louise Nevelson, and Hiram Powers.
