|The Whitney Museum of American Art open last year (2015) on|
Manhattan's lower west side. Day or night, it's an impressive
piece of Postmodern museum architecture by the Italian
architect, Renzo Piano.
|Breuer's Whitney Museum has been a New York landmark for more that fifty years. It has now been least to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.|
|Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, 1916, Robert Henri|
|Gertrude's first museum, circa 1931,|
|My Egypt, 1927, Charles Demuth|
|Art you will only see at the Whitney Museum...wherever it's located.|
|The new Whitney Museum as it was still on the drawing board.|
|The new Whitney is far removed |
from New York's"arty" precincts.
|Solid white walls, vast hardwood floors, lofty ceilings, and acres of glass--|
the interior spaces of the new Whitney Museum differ little from
similar museums around the world.
