The Panza Collection

Between 1990 and 1992, the Guggenheim acquired, through purchase and gift, over 350 works of Minimalist, Post-Minimalist, and Conceptual art from the renowned collection of Giuseppe Panza di Biumo. Widely acknowledged as one of the most important single concentrations of American art of the 1960s and 1970s, the Panza Collection gave the Guggenheim depth and quality in in postwar art commensurate with the strength of its prewar holdings. Its acquisition may be seen as an extension of the Guggenheim’s founding mission to collect and promote abstract art. At the same time it looked forward, allowing the museum to represent the most immediate historical roots of the expanded and pluralistic field of post-1960s art.
