Artstor and Glenstone are collaborating to make available 300 images of works from the museum’s collection, with a focus on works displayed in Glenstone’s first four exhibitions and its outdoor sculptures.
Glenstone, a museum of modern and contemporary art, is integrated into 200 acres of gently rolling pasture and unspoiled woodland in Potomac, Maryland. The museum building, designed by Charles Gwathmey, opened in 2006 and provides a contemplative, intimate setting for experiencing iconic works of art within a natural environment. Glenstone is in the process of constructing a second museum building designed by Thomas Phifer, set within an expanded landscape.
Guided by the personal vision of its founders, Mitchell Rales and Emily Wei Rales, Glenstone collects modern and contemporary works of the highest quality that trace great historical shifts in the way we understand and experience art. Glenstone’s collection comprises paintings, sculptures, works on paper, photographs, installations, and multimedia works by artists who have come to international prominence since World War II and concentrates on critical moments in an artist’s career. Artists represented include John Baldessari, Joseph Beuys, Mel Bochner, Alighiero e Boetti, Dan Flavin, Willem de Kooning, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Katharina Fritsch, Robert Gober, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, David Hammons, Eva Hesse, Jasper Johns, On Kawara, Ellsworth Kelly, Barbara Kruger, Brice Marden, Bruce Nauman, Sigmar Polke, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Charles Ray, Fred Sandback, Cy Twombly, and Jeff Wall. Glenstone also presents extraordinary outdoor sculptures and installations by artists including Richard Serra, Tony Smith, Andy Goldsworthy, Ellsworth Kelly, and Jeff Koons.
