Search the Collection
Welcome to eMuseum, the Zimmerli’s searchable online database powered by Gallery Systems. Visitors can access more than 7,000 images of artwork in our collection, and text information for some 18,000 additional works is also available. Museum staff continue to upload images and information weekly to increase access for visitors, so check back often!
The database reflects the Zimmerli’s permanent holdings, initiated when the museum was founded as the Rutgers University Art Gallery in 1966. Early collection strengths include American Art and European Art. In the 1990s, donations of Russian Art and Soviet Nonconformist Art expanded the breadth of the collection. Visitors can search by these collection categories, as well as the mediums of painting, sculpture, photography, and works on paper.
The Zimmerli provides high-resolution digital images of works from the collection for publication purposes. For more information and to request an image, contact Rights & Reproductions.
