This volume serves as an introduction to the outstanding holdings of SFMOMA’s painting and sculpture collection, which includes landmark works by artists such as Henri Matisse, Frida Kahlo, René Magritte, Andy Warhol, and Richard Diebenkorn. An introductory essay by curator Madeleine Grynsztejn outlines the general scope and evolution of the painting and sculpture collection, in particular its remarkable growth following the museum’s 1995 move to a new building designed by Mario Botta. Additional essays provide focused discussions on individual artworks and their broader significance within the history of art.
