International Cultural Art Works Exhibits Include:

- Latin American

Museum is home to some of the finest examples of work by early-20th-century masters from Latin America, such as Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Maria Martins, Roberto Matta, Armando Reverón, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Xul Solar, and Joaquín Torres-García. The strength of the Latin American art holdings, however, lies in post–World War II artists and movements.

At least three conceptual and/or stylistic nuclei are foundational to the collection: Concrete and Constructive art from Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Venezuela; 1960s Neo-Figurative and Pop art tendencies; and contemporary art and new media.

- Art of the Islamic Worlds

Starting in the 7th century, the religion of Islam expanded from the Arabian Peninsula over a large territory stretching from Spain to Southeast Asia.
The Museum’s collection includes examples of sacred and secular art. Many of the objects demonstrate the exchange of decorative motifs such as geometric patterns or vegetal motifs, and the importance of the art of the word.
Among the most significant acquisitions have been a 12th-century bronze incense burner from Iran in the form of a stylized feline figure; a superb, elaborately illuminated 14th-century Qur’an from Morocco; and a remarkable, early-16th-century tondino made in Iznik, Turkey.

- Arts of Africa, Oceania & the
Americas

The art of the peoples of sub-Saharan Africa, the Pacific Islands, and North, Central, and South America—including the Glassell Collections of African, Indonesian, and Pre-Columbian Gold.

- Arts of Asia

The Museum’s collections of Asian art span nearly five millennia and encompass the cultures of China, the Himalayas, India, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia.
This collecting department illuminates the specificity and diversity of form, iconography, and techniques in the Asian continent that result from local and global transmission of ideas, religion, and philosophies such as Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Taoism.
