Pomona Collections

The Young Collection of paintings was given to Scripps College by General and Mrs. Edward Clinton Young in 1946. The majority of the works in the collection are in the Impressionist style and were painted by well-renowned American and European masters, including Mary Cassatt, George Inness, Winslow Homer, and Theodore Robinson. The Youngs developed their extraordinary collection while living in the eastern United States. Their goal was to include high quality, representative work by the best American painters active during the period 1870-1930.
