Founded in 1930, the Whitney Museum of American Art has earned the distinction of being the first museum focusing on living American artists. The museum bears the name of sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, a tireless advocate of emerging artists and the museum’s founder. The permanent collection focuses on 20th century art and its foundation is based on Whitney’s personal collection of over 600 works of art. The museum houses works by such famous artists as Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, Thomas Hart Benton and Edward Hopper.
