New York Guggenheim is the first museum founded by Salomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Inaugurated the 21st of March 1959, the structure of this museum is one of the many things that made it popular. The museum’s interior was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, who created an incredible spiral setting in which the visitors are brought up by an elevator to the higher level in order to follow the designated way to the artworks.
The museum has almost 7,000 works but they are not exposed simultaneously, but rotating. Among the most famous artists, from the end of the 19th century to today, there are: Georges Braque, Paul Cezanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gaugain, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Rousseau, Georges Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh, Edouard Vuillard, Vasilij Vasilevich Kandinsky, Paul Klee and Marc Chagall. In the collection of the Guggenheim Museum there are also works of art made by contemporary artists. Among the most recent museum acquisitions, there are works by: Bani Abidi, Reza Afisina, Ai Weiwei, Khadim Ali, Luis Camnitzer, Adriano Costa, Federico Herrero, Piero Manzoni, Gabriel Sierra, Erika Verzutti, Carla Zaccagnini.
