The 2020 calendar includes iconic holdings and exciting new acquisitions by George Bellows, William Blake, Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, Edward Hopper, Gustav Klimt, Raphael, Auguste Renoir, Auguste Rodin, Sir Peter Paul Rubens, John Singer Sargent, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Joseph Mallord William Turner, and more.

This year's cover image—a detail of Skiffs (1877) by Gustave Caillebotte—depicts rowers zig-zagging across the canvas. Caillebotte adopted the broken brushstrokes of Monet and the bold palette of Renoir, but achieved a much different effect in conveying a sense of movement and progression of time and space. A detail of  Michael Trekur's Pitcher (1935/1942) from the Index of American Design appears on the back cover.
