Influential California industrialist Norton Simon was an avid collector and supporter of the arts, and, through his art foundations, he amassed an impressive collection or artworks ranging from 2000 year-old Asian sculptures to paintings by the Old Masters, Impressionists and early Modernists. The Museum is also home to masterpieces by post-war California artists assembled by the former Pasadena Art Museum. Its extensive exhibition and events programs are centered on this renowned collection.
