You will see Monet’s lovely Water Lilies, works by Italian Futurists and geometric abstracts. The Philip L. Goodwin Gallery contains contemporary furniture and household objects of outstanding design.
The highlights of the third floor are Picasso’s Guernica and Les Demoiselles d’A vignon. Guernica will be sent back to Spain in compliance with the artist’s wishes: he wanted this memorial to the Republicans who fell in the Civil War returned to his country when it was once again ruled by a democratic government. The MOMA is now preparing the painting for the transfer.
The work of Dadaists, Surrealists, Abstract Expressionists, some sculptures and a photography section fill the rest of the third floor.
As you leave the museum, spare a few moments for “Bookstore 2 run by MOMA. two doors to the west; it sells some of the articles on display in the design section, plus posters, books about art and the loveliest greeting cards you’ve ever seen.
