The Hyde Collection at the Hyde Museum at Glenns Falls, New York
The Hyde Collection offers a fascinating world of art and rich heritage of the Adirondack Region.
A gem of a museum, the Hyde collection does most definitely merit a detour. You can tour the home of Louis and Charlotte Hyde, a prominent turn-of-the century Adirondack industrial family, and enjoy their important collection of European and American art. An extraordinary variety of works by masters such as Raphael, da Vinci, Rubens, Rembrandt, Cezanne, Renoir, van Gogh, Picasso, Whistler, Eakins and Homer cover the walls of the Hyde House, a stately Florentine styled villa. All are displayed amongst Italian Renaissance and 18th centuary French antique furnishings. Eight elegant yet understated rooms surround a two-story, sky-lit courtyard studded with sculptures, and tropical plants.
Uniquely, The Hyde Collection combines the intimacy of this historic house with the sophistication of a large art museum complex. Four additional gallery spaces on three floors present a changing schedule of world-class exhibitions that captivate and intrigue all those who crave the best of the visual and creative arts. To experience the fine art of retail, give yourself extra time for browsing the Museum Shop. www.hydecollection.org
