About the Kelly Collection...
The Kelly Collection of American Illustration is a private collection dedicated to the acquisition, preservation, research and exhibition of Golden Age American illustration.

The Collection consists of several hundred original painting and drawings by significant American illustrators from 1890-1935 as well as an extensive reference library of related books and magazines. We try to make these resources available to scholars and museums whenever possible to further the interest in and knowledge of this wonderful genre.

The Kelly Collection of American Illustration embraces its role in the preservation of this area of American visual culture for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations.
