Philbrook has had a commitment to European art from its inception. Major gifts like the Laura A. Clubb collection brought 19th century Academic and Barbizon School paintings to the museum. Most dramatic, however, was the gift of the Samuel H. Kress Collection of Italian art from the 14th-18th centuries. This collection continues to define the character of Philbrook’s European holdings, and has encouraged numerous subsequent and complementary acquisitions.
