Collection Online Homepage Top
In 2008 new sections
were added for the major subcollections and acquisitions, such as the
Thannhauser and Panza collections, providing a survey of the growth of
the Guggenheim’s holdings from its inception in 1937.
The collection online encompasses both the classic and the new—from the
Guggenheim's earliest work, an 1867 landscape by Camille Pissarro,
through acquisitions from the past decade, such as Matthew Barney’s
Chrysler Imperial, 2002—striking a balance that reflects the dynamic
tenor of the institution as a whole.
While the website will ultimately provide a searchable database of the full collection of the Guggenheim Foundation, it currently represents only a selection from the museum’s overall holdings. For information on the Guggenheim's complete collection of a particular artist, for information on other artists in the collection not presently represented on the website, or for general queries about works in the collection, researchers are encouraged to contact the curatorial department. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a letter to the following address:
