Abstract Expressionist Franz Kline was born this day 105 years ago, known for his paintings that expressed movement and energy. In "Painting No. 7" from the Guggenheim collection, the characteristic black slashes suggest the full body movement of the artist as he spontaneously applied the paint, incorporating chance splatters and smearing: http://gu.gg/NkM2p

For the 50th Anniversary of the Guggenheim in 2009, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared today, May 15, Solomon R. Guggenheim Day. The day marked the beginning of a year-long celebration of art, architecture, and innovation celebrating our Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building which first opened to the public in 1959. Happy Guggenheim Museum Day from all of us! #FrankLloydWrightFridays

Happy birthday Georges Braque! In the summer of 1906, Braque traveled to Antwerp and captured the landscape in this painting on view now in our Thannhauser collection. Learn about how the imaginative colors in this work reflect the artist's interest in Fauvism: http://gu.gg/MUFhR

Artist #SalvadorDali was born this day in 1904, known for his Surrealist and “paranoid-critical” approach to art, which consisted in conveying his deepest psychological conflicts to the viewer in the hopes of eliciting an empathetic response.

Happy 85th birthday to American painter Jasper Johns. Although best known for his paintings, Johns also worked extensively with ink on plastic, a method used in "Untitled" 1983 from the Guggenheim collection. Johns described the subject matter of his work—familiar signs such as targets, numerals, and the American flag—as "things the mind already knows." http://gu.gg/N09pR
