The James Cowan Collection

Members: Free
Non-Members: Parthenon Admission
Permanent Exhibit at The Parthenon
In 1927, 21 crates arrived in Nashville from an anonymous donor. Three years later, upon his death, James M. Cowan was revealed as the patron who had donated his paintings to our city. The Cowan Collection is an assemblage of 63 paintings to be housed in the Parthenon. His selection of works emphasizes the landscape and seascape. The technical styles vary from the smooth almost non-brushstroke of the Neo-Classic, to the impasto and laded brush work of Impressionism. Read More
