    American Beauty: Highlights from the Richard M. Scaife Bequest features the finest works from the bequest of Mr. Scaife. A long-time trustee of the Brandywine—as well as a newspaper publisher, art collector and philanthropist—Scaife left a major part of his extensive art collection to both the Brandywine River Museum of Art and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art following his death in 2014.


    Both Brandywine and Westmoreland gained masterworks of American art that will be viewed together for the first time in this exhibition, which features 50 paintings—a top selection of 25 from each museum’s holdings—celebrating Scaife’s passion for the rich traditions of American art. Together, these paintings present a fascinating overview of the evolution of American art in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

    The entire museum is wheelchair accessible, including bathrooms, water fountains and the museum café. Accessible parking for vehicles displaying the appropriate disability permits is located on the far right side of the parking lot alongside the river, available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a designated barrier-free entrance into the Museum's lower level, located at the entrance alongside the river, to the right of the main entrance and close to the accessible parking. The Museum has several standard-sized, non-motorized wheelchairs available at no cost for visitor convenience. Service animals are welcome in the museum. Please check in at the Admissions desk in the Visitor Entrance upon arrival. Advance notice is recommended for special tours or accommodations. Call 610.388.8326 for information and group reservations.
