Painting + Sculpture


SFMOMA's painting and sculpture collection comprises more than 7,000 works created between 1900 and the present. It features important examples of movements ranging from Fauvism and Cubism to Pop art and Minimalism, with exceptional strength in Abstract Expressionism, Conceptualism, German Expressionism, and the art of California. In addition, the department has committed itself to collecting particular artists' work in depth. These key figures include Robert Rauschenberg, Clyfford Still, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, Frank Stella, Doris Salcedo, and Philip Guston. In recent years we have expanded our commitment to collecting installation art and begun actively pursuing examples of this vital aspect of contemporary practice.
