The Guggenheim collection online premiered in April 2001 with a selection of works of art from the New York museum’s holdings. Currently representing 169 artists, the collection online encompasses both the classic and the new—from the Guggenheim’s earliest work, an 1867 landscape by Camille Pissarro, through more recent acquisitions, a 1998–99 sculpture by Robert Gober—striking a balance that reflects the dynamic tenor of the institution as a whole. Each work may be viewed at small, medium, or large resolution, and is accompanied by insightful commentary. The site also includes additional scholarly and contextual information, such as artist biographies, definitions of art-historical terms, concepts on art, and suggested readings, all of which form a searchable database. In the winter of 2001, we added almost 100 works from the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, in the summer of 2003 we added works commissioned by the Deutsche Guggenheim, which will soon be followed by highlights from the collection of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
