Unique and incomparable: fantastic works of art from the collection of New York’s MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art in New York has a reputation like a thundering echo—the oldest American museum of modern art surely holds the most spectacular collection of this kind worldwide. With pioneering exhibitions of works by Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso, its first director, Alfred H. Barr, Jr., already ensured that word got around about its artistic standing.

Today, numerous icons of modern art delight visitors to MoMA: the breathtaking selection of pictures range from Picasso’s Demoiselles d’Avignon, Dance by Henri Matisse, Henri Rousseau’s The Dream, and Salvador Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory to Gerhard Richter’s cycle October 18, 1977 or Milton Glaser’s I?NY. The sculpture garden presents further highlights. The publication is suitable as a reference book, to prepare for a tour of the museum or as a travel souvenir. It provides a short introduction to the history and prominence of the Painting & Sculpture collection, and presents the most important masterpieces from the collection in large-format images.
