These materials reveal stories of the diverse cultures, iconic individuals, and memorable events that have contributed to and, indeed, shaped much of American, European, and Chinese history. The Pamplins have intentionally focused on acquiring artifacts and works of art whose stories are unique and, in some cases, pivotal to the history of the nation. Encyclopedic in scope and depth, this Collection of art and history is valued at more than $1 billion, placing it internationally among the most signifcant in private hands.The Pamplin Collection is also distinguished by the sheer volume of its more than 100,000 items as well as by the number of prominent historical fgures associated with these objects. The Collection is further recognized for its rich diversity--from ancient Chinese to American Indian to contemporary American art, and from several eras of this nation’s history.
