The Emily Fisher Landau Collection
Edited by Dana Miller; Foreword by Adam D. Weinberg; With Essays by Donna De Salvo and Joseph Giovannini
In May 2010, New York philanthropist Emily Fisher Landau promised 370 works by more than 85 artists to the Whitney Museum of American Art. This handsome volume highlights each of the artists in the gift, including Carl Andre, Jasper Johns, Willem de Kooning, Ed Ruscha, Lorna Simpson, Kiki Smith, Andy Warhol, and other seminal figures.
Much more than simply a record of the pledge, Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection showcases the best of the art made in the United States during the past five decades. Informative entries, written by the museum's curators and other scholars, cover all works in the gift and are accompanied by 125 stunning color plates. Also included are an essay on the nature of collecting by Donna De Salvo and a full-color checklist of the entire gift.
Dana Miller is Curator of the Permanent Collection, Adam D. Weinberg is Alice Pratt Brown Director, and Donna De Salvo is Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Programs, all at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
