Thannhauser Collection

Thannhauser Collection

In 1963, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s holdings were dramatically enriched when the foundation received a portion of Justin K. Thannhauser’s prized collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and modern French masterpieces as a permanent loan and promised gift. These paintings and sculptures formally entered the collection in 1978, two years after Thannhauser’s death, and were augmented by additional gifts from his widow, Hilde, between 1981 and 1991. The Thannhauser bequest provided an important historical survey of the period directly antedating that represented by the Guggenheim’s original holdings, allowing the museum to tell the story of modern art from its 19th-century roots for the first time.
