The University of Arizona Museum of Art’s permanent collection has mostly minor (but still worth seeing) works by Tintoretto, Piazzetta, Goya, Bruegel, Rodin, Picasso, Hopper, Pollock, Rothko, O’Keeffe, and many more. Asian and Latin American traditions are also well represented. Special shows often feature the work of well-known local artists and artists from Mexico.
The museum has an impressive collection of Spanish Medieval art, the signature piece of which is the 26-panel Retablo of the Cathedral of the Ciudad Rodrigo, an altarpiece depicting the sweep of biblical events from Genesis through the life of Jesus Christ to the Last Judgment.
