The Demuth Museum, established in 1981, is dedicated to developing awareness, understanding and appreciation of the artwork and legacy of Charles Demuth (1883-1935). As a leader of the American Modernist movement, Demuth is best known as a pioneer of the Precisionist style and a master watercolorist. The city of Lancaster was his home and inspired the majority of his artworks. The Demuth Museum owns more than 35 original Demuth works in its permanent collection, along with an extensive archive and library. The Demuth Tobacco Shop, the oldest operating shop of its kind in America, and other historic buildings surround the museum; all are open to the public.
