[ + ]d culture of Staten Island and those that reflect broad world civilizations. Although Egyptian, Greek, and Roman artifacts from the Ancient world, were being collected as early as 1911, with the acquisition of the MacDonald collection, the major bulk of the art collection came to the Museum post-1930. Over the years, the acquisitions of the Museum have included many portraits of prominent Staten Islanders, such as Ernest L. Ipsen's elegant double portrait of Mrs. Fulton Mills and her son Arthur.
