The Williams College Museum of Art is home to the world’s largest repository of the work of the artist brothers Maurice Prendergast (1858–1924) and Charles Prendergast (1863–1948). Throughout these web pages, you can learn more about the collection itself and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the museum staff’s efforts to digitize the Prendergast collection for the purpose of increasing access to these resources. These collections, as well as their family archives, came to the museum during the years 1983 to 1995 for research and educational purposes.
