• Welcome


    The Cotsen Foundation for Academic Research (CFAR) is dedicated to expanding both public and scholarly knowledge of the arts, making the renowned art collections of Lloyd Cotsen, businessman, collector, and philanthropist, accessible to museums and the academic world.

    "All of these objects strike some emotional bell within me, they appeal to my curiosity, to the thrill of discovery of the extraordinary in the ordinary, to my sense of humor, to my search for the beauty in form and simplicity."

    Lloyd Cotsen
