The Helene and Zygfryd Wolloch Collection of Modern Sculpture

The Helene and Zygfryd Wolloch Collection of Modern Sculpture

This collection of sculptures was donated to the Museum 15 years
ago by Helene and Zygfryd Wolloch from Scarsdale, New York.
The Collection encompasses over a century of sculpture, from Auguste Rodin of the late 19th century through Arnaldo Pomodoro of the 1980s; it includes works by major sculptors in modern art, among them Jean Arp, Alberto Giacometti, Jacques Lipchitz, Henry Moore, Marino Marini and Alexander Calder. The Collection was first exhibited in 1997,
and constitutes an invaluable addition to the Museum's collections.
The Collection contains a diversity of realistic and abstract representations of the human figure, alongside abstract constructions. The display highlights formal aspects concerned primarily with object–space relationships, pointing to the new answer provided by modern sculpture to this fundamental feature of the medium. Incorporated into the display are additional sculptures from the Museum's collections.
