The Whitney Collection Never Ends

Since the Whitney Museum of American Art is one of my favorite art museums, I go there two or three times a year. Each time there is at least one floor, and sometimes two, dedicated to exhibits curated from the museum’s collection. You would think by now I would have seen a substantial portion of their collection. Yet, everytime I go, I see lots of works I’ve never seen before. Here are a few of the pieces that caught my eye during my more recent visit. They were part of an exhibit “The Whitney’s Collection: Selections from 1900 to 1965.”
