Permanent Collection

MATISSE AND BEYOND: THE PAINTING AND
SCULPTURE COLLECTION
Representing movements ranging from Fauvism and Cubism to Pop art and Minimalism, SFMOMA’s modern art holdings include paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by some of the 20th century’s most celebrated artists. The rotating selection features works by a changing lineup of artists, including Bruce Conner, Marcel Duchamp, Frida Kahlo, Yves Klein, Joan Mitchell, Piet Mondrian, Georgia O’Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, and Diego Rivera. Works on paper by Paul Klee from the Djerassi Collection are featured in thematic presentations in the Djerassi gallery on an ongoing basis.

BETWEEN ART AND LIFE: THE CONTEMPORARY PAINTING AND SCULPTURE COLLECTION
In 1959 Robert Rauschenberg said, “Painting relates to both art and life. Neither can be made. (I try to act in that gap between the two.)
