Modern & Contemporary Art

The Modern Art collection focuses on paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, photographs, and installation works from the 20th and 21st centuries. Early 20th century paintings include works by Edouard Vuillard, Max Beckmann, and Arshile Gorky. Extensive post-1945 holdings include works by Jackson Pollock, Agnes Martin, Andy Warhol, Willem de Kooning, Martin Puryear, Jacob Lawrence, and Do-Ho Suh.

Seattle Art Museum acknowledges that we are on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish and the customary territories of the Suquamish and Muckleshoot Peoples. As a cultural and educational institution, we honor our ongoing connection to these communities past, present, and future. We also acknowledge the urban Native peoples from many Nations who call Seattle their home.
