Product Description

Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art

Edited by Ann Temkin.

This volume provides a fresh look at The Museum of Modern Art's collection of painting and sculpture, the result of almost ninety years of collaborative effort between MoMA's curators and Trustees. An essay by Ann Temkin, The Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture, explores the history of the collection and the considerations that have guided the Museum's acquisitions. The thoughtful selection of over two hundred works, reproduced in full-color plates, includes legendary favorites, such as Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night (1889), Pablo Picasso's Girl before a Mirror (1932), and Andy Warhol's Gold Marilyn Monroe (1962); lesser-known masterworks, such as Diego Rivera's Agrarian Leader Zapata (1931) and Niki de Saint Phalle's Shooting Painting American Embassy (1961); and contemporary landmarks, such as Kara Walker's Gone: A Historical Romance of a Civil War as It Occurred b'tween the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart (1994) and Cai Guo-Qiang's Borrowing Your Enemy's Arrows (1998). With 126 years between the earliest and most recent works, Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art is an opportunity to encounter an array of artistic approaches that are collected under the banner of modern art.
