Timken Museum of Art

timken museum

A desire to share the extraordinary European art collection of Amy and Anne Putnam with San Diego residents and visitors resulted in the establishment of the Timken Museum of Art.
The Timken Museum of Art has its roots in the serendipitous relationship between two sisters, Anne R. and Amy Putnam - members of the Ohio-based Timken family of the Timken roller bearing fame - and San Diego attorney Walter Ames.

The Putnam sisters spent decades acquiring European old master paintings. Initial paintings from the sisters' collection were donated to San Diego's Fine Arts Gallery (now the San Diego Museum of Art). Their later acquisitions were loaned to prestigious museums around the country until the Timken Museum of Art opened in 1965.

In 1951, with the assistance of longtime friend and advisor Walter Ames, the Putnam sisters established the nonprofit Putnam Foundation, under which their artworks became designated as the Putnam Foundation Collection. In the early 1960's, Ames secured financial support from the Timken family to help build the museum.
The works in the Putnam Foundation Collection are primarily in three distinct areas: European old master paintings, 18th and 19th-century American art, and Russian icons. Each collection boasts unique and priceless representations of the specific genre.
