Grey Art Gallery

Grey Art Gallery is located adjacent to Lower Manhattan's Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village, New York City, and is part of the New York University (NYU) campus. The gallery's name comes from one of its principal donors, Abby Weed Grey. The gallery is guardian and custodian of the New York University Art Collection, which was founded in 1958 with the acquisition of Francis Picabia's Resonateur and Fritz Glarner's Relational Painting. The gallery's current collection is made up of approximately 6,000 objects, most of which date from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Among the collection's highlights are Pablo Picasso's Bust of Sylvette and Joseph Cornell's Chocolat Menier. It also includes works by Romare Bearden, Elaine de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Henri Matisse, and Joan MirĂ², among others.[1]
