In the early 1970s, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm wanted to build a collection centered around works made by contemporary American artists. Working with New York-based group Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), the museum selected 30 pieces in a variety of media by some of New York’s most important young artists. In an effort to help raise the necessary funds for these acquisitions, the Moderna and E.A.T. created The New York Collection for Stockholm Portfolio. In an edition of 300, this portfolio was composed of a print made be each artist slated for the museum’s collection. The complete portfolio features works by the following artists: Lee Bontecou, Robert Breer, John Chamberlain, Walter de Maria, Jim Dine, Mark di Suvero, Öyvind Fahlström, Dan Flavin, Red Grooms, Hans Haacke, Alex Hay, Donald Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Morris, Louise Nevelson, Kenneth Noland, Claes Oldenburg, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, James Rosenquist, George Segal, Richard Serra, Keith Sonnier, Richard Stankiewicz, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol and Robert Whitman.
Internationally renowned sculptor Mark di Suvero, born in Shanghai, China, immigrated to the United States in 1941 where he went on to receive a BA in Philosophy from the University of California, Berkeley. One of the most important American artists to emerge from the Abstract Expressionist era, Di Suvero is recognized for his steel architectural-scale sculptures which often have moving elements that invite viewer participation.
