A museum of modern and contemporary art especially rich in post-war American and European art.
In addition to Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, and art from the 1970s through the end of the century, the collection includes significant nineteenth-century European artists such as Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh. Cubism, Surrealism, Constructivism, and other trends of the revolutionary twenties and thirties are also well represented.
The museum continues to collect leading contemporary artists.
