An exciting guide to, and celebration of, the Whitney Museum and its outstanding collection of American art

This handbook published to mark the Whitney's move to its new location in 2015, highlights the museum's extraordinary holdings and its history.

Beautifully illustrated with abundant new photography, the book pairs scholarly entries on 350 artists including Calder, Hopper, Johns, O'Keeffe, and Warhol with images of some of their most significant works. The museum's history and the evolution of its collection, including the Whitney's important distinction as one of the few American museums founded by an artist, and the notion of 'American' in relation to the collection, are covered in two short essays.
