Chapter Summary

The Etruscan collection was a part of the Department of Ancient art at the Detroit Institute of Arts for three decades. After a reorganization of the museum, it is now cared for in the Department of European Art. The Etruscan collection is not extensive but it consists of objects which are generally of museum quality. The Detroit Museum of Art was the predecessor of the present Detroit Institute of Arts. Miss Avery was the author of the Art Loan catalogue and was described in the press at the time as well versed in the arts and familiar with the great galleries and museums of Europe. Several important additions were made to the Etruscan collection in the decade of the 1920s, a time when the museum as an institution was being shaped and collection policies were developing toward the creation of what can only be considered an encyclopedic museum.
