144 Exhibition Checklist
The JP Morgan Chase Art Collection is one of the oldest and most extensive corporate collections in the world. The Art Collection began in 1959 when David Rockefeller, then president of the Chase Manhattan Bank, established the firm’s art program and took the lead in the field of corporate art collecting. By integrating artwork within the architecture of new buildings and incorporating an enlightened approach to acquisitions, this forerunner of corporate collections became a model for other companies worldwide.
Collected Visions exhibition marked the first time a survey of the Collection’s modern and contemporary art has been assembled for an international audience. Curated by current Director of the Art Collection, Lisa K. Erf, the exhibition featured 70 signature works from many of the most important established artists of the 20th century and recent acquisitions by artists emerging in the 21st century.
The catalog, which is prepared in parallel with the exhibition, consists of 70 works belonging to many leading artists of the 20th century as well as 21st century artists who have joined the collection in recent years. Some of these artists are Jean-Michel Basquiat, Joseph Beuys, Jean Dubuffet, Keith Haring, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Jeff Koons, Bruce Nauman, Cindy Sherman, and Andy Warhol.
