Step by Step

The Whitney Museum has become a world reference thanks to its extensive collection of works by 20th and 21st century American artists.

It was inaugurated in 1931 thanks to the work of Gertrude Vanderbil Whitney, founder and staunch supporter of American art. Whitney worked hard to promote American artists and works in the face of the prestige enjoyed by European art at the time.

The museum's collection has grown to more than 18,000 works by various renowned artists. In its permanent exhibitions you will find names of the stature of Andy Warhol, Edward Hopper, Alexander Calder and Robert Herni, among many others. If you're up for it, you can also take advantage of the famous Whitney Biennial, held every two years, to discover the latest trends and emerging artists of the moment.

These are some of the emblematic works to be found at the Whitney Museum:

  • Calder's Circus, by Alexander Calder
  • The Brooklyn Bridge, by George Stella
  • A Woman in the Sun, by Edward Hopper
  • Summer Days, by Georgia O'Keeffe
  • Three Flags, by Jasper Johns

After several changes of location, since 2015 the Whitney Museum of American Art has been housed in a building designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano. In the heart of the Meatpacking District, the terraces on its upper floors offer privileged views of the Hudson River, southern Manhattan and One World Trade Center.
