The museum has a large collection of approximately 5,000 prints, drawings, and watercolors dating from the 15th century to the present, including a complete set of Albrecht Dürer’s small woodcut portfolio The Small Passion.

The collection houses an impressive group of modern European works with an emphasis on German Expressionists and Bauhaus faculty members, including Josef Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, and Emil Nolde. In addition, there are strong holdings of American prints and drawings, including works by George Bellows, Winslow Homer, Reginald Marsh, and James Abbott McNeill Whistler, and the largest museum collection of etchings by Northern California printmaker Roi Partridge.
