Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden: The Collection is the Hirshhorn's first major collection publication since its inaugural catalog of 1974. Containing nearly 200 entries on individual artists, artworks and the richness and strengths of the Museum's collection, the book is bolstered by three major essays and new scholarship on topics ranging from the Museum's collection history and its future; the Museum's unique building and Garden; and the Hirshhorn's groundbreaking conservation work. Delving into the Museum's prolific holdings—from 20th-century sculptural masterworks to the groundbreaking works of mid-century to the new-media works of the contemporary era—the book is the most ambitious scholarly undertaking of the Museum's past 47 years and looks forward to its 50th anniversary.
The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden's holdings encompass one of the most important collections of postwar American and European art in the world, and has been a leading voice for groundbreaking artists since 1974.
