The Arthur Geisert Collection

Undoubtedly the largest collection at the Dubuque Museum of Art is the work of etcher and illustrator, Arthur Geisert with well over 2000 works and growing. From concept drawings and etched copper plates to original hand-colored etchings and published books, the artist’s entire process from start to finish is well represented in the collection and always on view!
