The Hilla Rebay Collection

The Hilla Rebay Collection

Through her perpetual contact with artists over the course of her lifetime, Hilla Rebay, first director and curator of Guggenheim’s Museum of Non-Objective Painting—which would be renamed the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 1952—amassed her own significant art collection. Part of her estate, which included works by Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Piet Mondrian, and Kurt Schwitters, was given to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum four years after Rebay’s death in 1967.
