Few institutions approach the richness of The Museum of Modern Art's holdings in painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, illustrated books, architectural models and drawings, graphic and industrial design, photography, film, video and multimedia installations. This updated edition of "MoMA Highlights: 350 Works from The Museum of Modern Art" is a fresh consideration of the Museum's superlative collection of modern and contemporary art, featuring 115 new works since the 2004 edition, many of them recent acquisitions ranging from typefaces to conceptual performances that reflect the Museum's ongoing dedication to the art of our time. "MoMA Highlights" presents a rich chronological overview of the most significant artworks from each of the Museum's curatorial departments--painting and sculpture, drawings, prints and illustrated books, photography, architecture and design, film, and media and performance art--with each work represented by a vibrant, high-resolution color image and accompanied by a short informative text. Trimmer and lighter in weight than previous versions, this new edition of "MoMA Highlights" is an indispensable resource for exploring one of the premier art collections in the world.
