The Albright-Knox Art Gallery, located in Buffalo, New York, houses one of the world’s most extraordinary collections of contemporary and modern art, including works by well-known masters such as Francis Bacon, Helen Frankenthaler, Paul Gauguin, Alberto Giacometti, Frida Kahlo, Joseph Kosuth, Willem de Kooning, Henri Matisse, Georgia O’Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Andy Warhol. This richly illustrated catalogue accompanies the first major traveling exhibition of works from the Gallery’s Collection. Featuring eighty iconic paintings and sculptures dated from the late nineteenth century to the present, The Long Curve highlights the history of the Albright-Knox’s remarkable Collection by focusing on the pioneering benefactors and museum professionals who made it possible. With essays by Albright-Knox Chief Curator Douglas Dreishpoon and Head of Research Resources Susana Tejada, texts on each of the works by Curator of Education Mariann W. Smith, and a timeline of the Gallery’s 150-year history by Curator for the Collection Holly E. Hughes, the catalogue not only captures the history of a vibrant contemporary arts institution, but also provides a survey of the development of art over the past century.
