The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is on the campus of Vassar College, located in the Hudson Valley of New York. Among the strengths of the encyclopedic collection are Netherlandish holdings from 1400 to 1800, comprised of approximately 40 paintings, two dozen drawings, and more than two hundred prints. Highlights of the paintings collection are Crucifixion from the circle of Rogier van der Weyden, a still-life by Pieter Claesz., Odysseus and Circe by Salomon de Bray, and View of a Dutch Village with a Ruined Wall by Daniel Vosmaer. Anchoring the Old Master print collection is the 1941 gift from the family of Felix M. Warburg that includes works by Lucas van Leyden and Rembrandt. Complementing these prints are more recent purchases, such as the copper plate for Rembrandt’s The Star of the Kings. The collection of Dutch and Flemish drawings features works by Jacob Jordaens, Jan Lievens., Govert Flinck, and Cornelis Bega.
