The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum – New York

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

New York – 24 August 2016

I spent more than two weeks this year in New York. I visited The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. A dream come true to be there. The building is unique, a collection is amazing. In addition, I could see the exhibition of the Hungarian-born László Moholy-Nagy. I show here some pictures of my visit. Enjoy 🙂

Architecture

In 1943, Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned to design a building to house the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, which had been established by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in 1939. In a letter dated June 1, 1943, Hilla Rebay, the curator of the foundation and director of the museum, instructed Wright, “I want a temple of spirit, a monument!” See more here (click!)
