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.

The Amon Carter’s works on paper collection includes more than 900 watercolors and drawings covering a wide range of subjects, from views of the West by early nineteenth-century artist-explorers to twentieth-century abstractions.

Artists represented in these holdings include William Trost Richards, James McNeill Whistler, John Marin, and Oscar Bluemner. These holdings also include more than 7,000 prints, from lithographs of the Mexican War and from William Guy Wall’s magnificent Hudson River Port Folio to complete sets of prints by George Bellows and Stuart Davis.
