Although BYU acquired its first painting in 1909, systematic collecting began in the 1930s and 1940s when faculty members and administrators embraced the educational value of collecting art. The Art Department acquired paintings and works on paper by several early 20th-century Utah artists, including 81 works by James T. Harwood, 155 by John Willard Clawson, and 54 by Edwin Evans, as well as 14 paintings by Idaho/Wyoming artist Minerva Teichert.
