Twentieth Century Painting and Sculpture in the Philadelphia Museum of Art


By Ann Temkin, Susan Rosenberg and Michael Taylor
Contributions by Rachael Arauz

Featuring pivotal works of 20th-century painting and sculpture, this book handsomely illustrates a selection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's outstanding modern art collection, accompanied by lively descriptive notes.

The Museum's emphasis on early modern art was heralded by the first acquisitions of works by Constantin Brancusi and Pablo Picasso in the early 1930s. At the core of the holdings of modern art are the A. E. Gallatin and the Louise and Walter Arensberg collections. Together, they establish this institution as one of the world's pre-eminent museums in which to see modern art, home to the most important collection of Marcel Duchamp's work and unparalleled for its installation of sculpture by Brancusi.
