Museums – New York City

In 1951, Wilson penned his “Manifesto For Post-Modern Art”, a copy of which is reproduced here.  This Manifesto is held in the Library at New York’s famed Museum of Modern Art.

In addition, in 1945 and 1946, Wilson was issued permits by the Metropolitan Museum of Art pursuant to its Copyist Program in the Fifth Avenue New York City location to reproduce original Rembrandt paintings.  Although we do not know at this time how many paintings Wilson copied, we do know that there were at least two that were reproduced in the Museum.

The first painting is Rembrandt’s “Self Portrait”:
