Description

At the beginning of the 20th century, the art world was strongly influenced by European art and older classics. Philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney didn't like it. She founded her own museum dedicated to living American artists. Since then it has become a touchstone of artistic achievement of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Still dedicated to American art, the Whitney houses 21,000 works by 3,000 artists. Here you will find paintings, sculptures, drawings, videos, photographs and new media. You will gain an insight into how the American creative genius has manifested itself from 1900 to the present.

Andy Warhol is perhaps the most famous name among the artists presented, but you will also see other 20th century titans such as Jasper Johns, Georgia O'Keeffe and Edward Hopper.

Alongside the visionaries of the recent past, the Whitney is still very much committed to the new. Every two years, the Whitney Biennial shows works by young American artists.

Like most New Yorkers, the Whitney has moved around the city a lot. The most recent move was in 2015 to a new building in the city centre, designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano. The new building gives the Whitney more space than ever before to showcase its extensive collection of modern and contemporary American art.

Located on the west side of Manhattan in the Meatpacking District, the Whitney Museum of American Art, right on the High Line, is the place where you will meet the American genius.
