Topics included Mexican Colonial religious art, Dutch portraiture and genre painting.
The Figge Art Museum in Davenport is the premier art exhibition and education facility between Chicago and Des Moines, home to some of the Midwest's finest art collections. Its Mexican Colonial collection documents the growth of painting in New Spain in the 17th and 18th centuries out of the traditions of European religious painting of the same period.
Other permanent galleries include Northern European, the academic traditions of the 18th and 19th century, Haitian, American Regionalism and the American West.
