Upstate New York’s Best Kept Secret: The Hyde Collection

In the wilds of Glens Falls, NY lives a surprising collection of fine and decorative art.

 

Founded by Louis and Charlotte Hyde, the collection contains historic furniture, books, paintings, sculptures and pottery. Now expanded with many modern additions, the museum, while relatively small and “off the beaten track” contains an impressive and broad collection including Italian Renaissance and eighteenth-century French antiques.

 

Some of the artists include:

  • Botticelli
  • El Greco
  • van Dyck
  • Ingres
  • Raphael
  • Rembrandt
  • Rubens
  • Tintoretto
  • Cézanne
  • Degas
  • Matisse
  • Picasso
  • Renoir, and
  • van Gogh

In addition, works by important American artists include:

  • Eakins
  • Childe
  • Hassam
  • Winslow Homer
  • Ryder and
  • Whistler

The Round Lake Library and the Round Lake Malta Branch offer FREE passes for four. Passes can be checked out for one week on your library card. See more about the collection at Hydecollection.org. That’s the power of your library card!
