Major gifts by dedicated patrons have often been the building blocks of museum collections. The Hammer Museum is proud to be the recipient of a substantial promised gift from our longtime supporters Susan and Larry Marx. This is the first public presentation of a selection from the extraordinary gift that the Marxes have pledged to the Hammer. The Marx Collection comprises more than 150 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper made by 109 different artists. This postwar collection includes many exemplary works by seminal abstract expressionist and conceptual artists, alongside exciting works by newer artists, and will complement the Hammer Contemporary Collection.
