Anna Brugh Singer and William H. Singer, Jr.


The Museum's founders Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



While the artist William Henry Singer, Jr. and his wife Anna Brugh Singer lived most of their lives in Europe, the couple bestowed a rare legacy on the people of Washington County. In 1931, the Singers gave the Museum of Fine Arts to the community along with a substantial collection of American and European art. The gift was motivated by Anna's deep affection towards her hometown of Hagerstown. The couple continued to make gifts to the Museum throughout their lives. In 1949, Anna greatly expanded the original museum with the addition of two wings given as a memorial to her late husband.
