This catalogue accompanies an exhibition of paintings, sculpture, drawings, and prints from Edward R. Broida's recent gift to the Museum of 175 contemporary works from his collection. These works reflect a wide range of artistic approaches, and were created largely after 1960. Several artists, such as Vija Celmins, Philip Guston, Ken Price, and Christopher Wilmarth, are represented in depth. The gift also includes works by Richard Artschwager, Jake Berthot, Susan Rothenberg, Joel Shapiro, Mark di Suvero, and John Walker, among others. Significant works by Jennifer Bartlett, Bruce Nauman, and Richard Serra provide important additions to the Museum's holdings.
The catalogue includes an introduction to the collection by John Elderfield, the Marie-JosÃ©e and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture, and an interview with Mr. Broida conducted by Ann Temkin, Curator of Painting and Sculpture. The plate section reproduces at least one work by each of the thirty-eight artists included in the gift, and in many cases numerous works by one artist are shown. Includes 81 color illustrations.
