    Avery Brundage Collection

    In 1959, Chicago industrialist Avery Brundage agreed to donate his vast collection of Asian art to San Francisco on the condition that the city build a new museum to house it. In total, Avery Brundage donated more than 7,700 Asian art objects to the City of San Francisco—all housed at the Asian Art Museum.

    Today, the museum’s collection stands at more than eighteen thousand objects, making it the largest museum in the United States devoted exclusively to the arts of Asia.
