Search the Collection

Welcome to eMuseum, the Zimmerli’s searchable online database powered by Gallery Systems. Visitors can access more than 7,000 images of artwork in our collection, and text information for some 18,000 additional works is also available. Museum staff continue to upload images weekly to increase access for visitors. Users may save “Favorites” sets after creating individual accounts.

The database reflects the Zimmerli’s permanent holdings, initiated when the museum was founded as the Rutgers University Art Gallery in 1966. Early collection strengths include American Art and European Art. In the 1990s, donations of Russian Art and Soviet Nonconformist Art expanded the breadth of the collection. Visitors can search by these collection categories, as well as the mediums of painting, sculpture, photography, and works on paper (which includes the museum’s original illustrations for children’s books).
