The Coutts Museum of Art houses over 1,500 objects of art, including original paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. Artworks for the museum were purchased mainly by Warren Hall Coutts, Jr. who traveled extensively and purchased works of art from all over the world. The collection includes works from Russia, China, France, Holland, England and South America. An important part of the museum is the work of prominent Kansas and Midwestern artists.Our El Dorado trip planner makes visiting Coutts Museum Of Art and other El Dorado attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Traditional- The museum has several wonderful examples of the Rococo style, including a prized still life by Georges Jeannin titled Floral Study.
Contemporary- The collection offers a wide range of contemporary work starting with a marvelous collection of Prairie Printmaker’s work. The gallery is proud to house the largest Makk collection in the United States. Americo and Eva Makk and son A. B. are a world renowned family of painters.
Western- Of particular interest to many viewers is the Western Art section of the gallery, which houses the largest collections of Frederic Remington bronzes in Kansas. As impressive are the Charles M. Russell and Frank Tenny Hoffman sculptures.
One delightful aspect of the museum is the tasteful antique furnishings, some of which belonged to the Coutts family. Antique Persian rugs and artful arrangements set the mood for leisurely, relaxed browsing.
Coutts Museum Of Art reviews
This is a great place to view some great art pieces. Friendly staff! I've also enjoyed their monthly Brown Bag Lunch programs they offer . more »
This is truly a gem for El Dorado and people visiting or passing thru! It is well maintained and managed. The "Brown Bag" lunch/concert each month is really great?! more »
Surprising to find displays of this quality here. Also a huge collection of Remingtons. New management is expanding the space and working to get more out to the public.
Beautiful small museum with friendly staff and a very impressive collection of Makk pieces
