The Inness Collection

Our church is proud to be the home of George Inness, Jr.'s paintings. Our collection spans paintings of old Florida to highly renowned works that hung in the Louvre for thirty years. The paintings show an artist's love of nature and spirituality. Visitors to our church noted how the famous “Inness greens” come to life in our sanctuary.

Inness, Jr. (1854-1926) was one of the America’s foremost figure and landscape painters and a respected philanthropist. He has been recognized as a great Florida artist for his depiction of the state’s unspoiled landscapes full of the flora and fauna of his time. He was the son of George Inness (1825- 1894), one of the most influential American artists of the nineteenth century.

On April 13, 2019, George Inness, Jr. was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame. “The Florida Artists Hall of Fame recognizes our state’s most distinguished artists and to be inducted is the highest honor bestowed on artists by the State of Florida,” said Secretary Laurel M. Lee. For the biography submitted for this honor, click HERE. Further information on the works of Inness, Jr. can be found HERE.

We hope you’ll visit and allow us to showcase the largest public collection of George Inness, Jr.'s paintings anywhere, along with his Florida Artists Hall of Fame trophy.
