An overview of Brandeis University's Rose Art Museum, which houses a terrific collection of American and European works from the early twentieth century to the present. Spanning the last century in western art, from the early European and American Modernist movement up to the twenty-first century, the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University possesses one of the most extraordinary archives of any academic institution. This catalog of their holdings demonstrates the breadth of the collection, which has continued to grow since its inception in 1961. In addition to the works of artists such as Picasso, Braque, Cezanne, Kokoschka and Warhol, the Rose's collection includes contemporary works by Nam June Paik, Richard Prince, Matthew Barney and Gregory Crewdson. The Museum's director, Michael Rush, puts the collection into perspective, with essays on individual works by Brandeis faculty and alumni.
