"Jasper Johns to Jeff Koons: Four Decades of Art from the Broad Collections"
2001-10-07 until 2002-01-06
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Los Angeles, CA,
The first large-scale exhibition of works from the collections of Eli and Edythe Broad. Based in Los Angeles, the Broads have amassed one of the finest collections of contemporary art internationally, and the exhibition seeks to capture the breadth, depth, and exceptional quality of their holdings. Jasper Johns to Jeff Koons highlights significant groups of works by 24 artists represented by more than 100 paintings, sculptures, and photographs.
The exhibition draws from the Broads' personal collection and the holdings of The Broad Art Foundation. Developed over the past 30 years, these collections span four decades and include some of the most emblematic works in the history of postwar art, among them classic examples by Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein. The exhibition features paintings such as Johns's Watchman (1964), Flag (1967), and Untitled (1975), his first crosshatch painting; Warhol's iconic depictions of Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Elvis Presley; and Lichtenstein's I…I'm Sorry (1965–66), as well as his five-part Rouen Cathedral, Set III (1969).
