European Painting and Sculpture

The Cleveland Museum of Art’s collection of European painting and sculpture from 1500 to 1800 is of international importance. Areas of particular depth include Italian Renaissance and Mannerist works (Andrea del Sarto’s The Sacrifice of Isaac), Italian Baroque art (Caravaggio’s The Crucifixion of Saint Andrew), 17th-century Dutch painting (Frans Hals’s Portrait of Tieleman Roosterman), Spanish Baroque painting (Francisco de Zurbarán’s Christ and the Virgin in the House at Nazareth), German and Austrian Baroque works, 17th-century French painting (Nicolas Poussin’s The Holy Family on the Steps), and 18th-century French and British painting (Thomas Lawrence’s Portrait of  Catherine Grey, Lady Manners). The museum’s portrait miniature holdings are among the most outstanding in the United States.
