Highlights from the Permanent Collection

January 1, 1970

The Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion, Lunder Wing, The Paul J. Schupf Wing for the Works of Alex Katz

This installation of the Museum’s permanent collection integrates works from the Lunder Collection with the Museum’s core holdings and loans. Reinstalled in 2014 with support from the Henry Luce Foundation, and regularly refreshed, this display reflects the Museum’s commitment to developing an ever more comprehensive representation of the art of the Americas and global contemporary art.

Highlights include Maya Lin’s monumental marble sculpture Disappearing Bodies of Water (2013), David Smith’s steel Voltri Bolton II (1962), and James McNeill Whistler’s oil painting Chelsea in Ice (1864). Cherished cornerstones of the collection, such as Winslow Homer’s The Trapper (1870) and Alex Katz’s Pas de Deux (1983), are on view, as are recently acquired works by Joshua Johnson, Rosalyn Drexler, Alma Thomas, and Ai Weiwei.
