  1. It's too bad none of the Rauschenberg's are on display right now. http://www.moma.org/collection/artist.php?artist_id=4823

    And I like the Warhol electric chair series.

  2. I totally agree, we were also hoping to see some Basquiat, but they were not on display either.

    There was a special Warhol exhibition with his motion pictures that we liked though.

  4. I saw 'Basquiat a Venezia' at Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice in 1999. It was just his stuff. Lots of large canvases, painted dressers, etc.

    The Warhols I have seen all western Europe and N America. My faves are the light-on-dark ones from Rosenberg chair series. The big, wide ones.

    MoMA also has my favorite van Doesburg (which is also never on display). http://www.moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?criteria=O:AD:E:6076&page_number=1&template_id=1&sort_order=1
