DePauw's American art collection includes strong holdings in regional Impressionism. Known collectively as the Hoosier Group, these turn of the century artists include T.C. Steele, Richard Gruelle, William Forsyth, J. Ottis Adams, and Otto Stark. A large number of graphite figure sketches by Hoosier artist Elmer E. Taflinger, active around the same time as the Hoosier Group, are also housed in the collection.
