Collection: Albright-Knox Art Gallery

Albright-Knox Art Gallery is a major showplace for modern art and contemporary art. It is located directly opposite Buffalo State College and the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, NY.

The Albright–Knox Art Gallery has long operated not by collecting artists' work in depth but by trying to acquire key works. The gallery's collection includes several works spanning art throughout the centuries. Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic styles can be found in works by artists of the nineteenth century such as Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh.

Revolutionary styles from the early twentieth century such as cubism, surrealism, constructivism are represented in works by artists like Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Jean Metzinger, Albert Gleizes, Henri Matisse, André Derain, Joan Miró, Piet Mondrian, and Alexander Rodchenko. Frida Kahlo is represented by Self-Portrait with Monkey. Because of Seymour H. Knox and Gordon M. Smith, a former director, the Albright-Knox was one of the first museums to collect Abstract Expressionism in depth.

More modern pieces showing styles of abstract expressionism, pop art, and art of the 1970s through the end of the century can also be found represented by artists such as Arshile Gorky, Jackson Pollock, Clyfford Still, and Andy Warhol. Additionally, the gallery is also rich in various pieces of post-war American and European art; their contemporary collection includes pieces by artists such as Kiki Smith, Allan Graham, Georg Baselitz, John Connell, and Per Kirkeby. 

As of 2020, the Albright-Knox's current exhibition space can accommodate only 200 works — just 3% of its 6,740-piece collection. Construction to expand the Albright-Knox is underway and the new Buffalo AKG Art Museum is expected to open in 2022 on the Elmwood Avenue campus. {Wikipedia: Albright-Knox Art Gallery
