The Guggenheim museums in New York City and Venice, Italy are home to some of the most incredible modern and contemporary masterpieces in the art world. It's a museum with a long and delightful history, and they've just given the world a wonderful gift:
And not just art books, exhibition catalogues.
While art books are wonderful, exhibition catalogues give you a chance to go back in time and read what artists said about their work at an exact moment in time. The Guggenheim has digitized its catalogue and posted them online for download.
There are more than 200 books and catalogues in the collection, including Max Ernst, Paul Klee, Mark Rothko, Gustav Klimpt, and Robert Rauchenberg.
For free. But before we give you the link, we want to invite you to pop in the gallery this holiday weekend. It's going to be either hot and humid or raining cats and dogs in Charleston so come in to cool down or dry off. We've got new art and new artists to share with you, and we'd love to hear what you're reading from the Guggenheim collection.
Okay, here's the link...happy reading!
