Join us for another in our popular virtual museum tour series!  The Anderson Collection, housed at Stanford University adjacent to the Cantor Arts Center, is one of the world’s most outstanding private collections of modern and contemporary American art from the second half of the twentieth century. Please join us for a student-docent led tour of this truly engaging collection of paintings and sculpture. 

The Collection has come to be thought of as a “collection of collections” in that groups of artworks representing a variety of time periods and media are included. It is anchored in the work of Abstract Expressionists like Jackson Pollock and extends to contemporary painters such as Terry Winters, Sean Scully, Vija Celmins and Julie Mehretu. Major post-war movements represented within the Collection include Color Field Painting, Post-Minimalism, California Funk Art, Bay Area Figurative Art, and contemporary abstract painting.

Each work is exemplary of its movement, including Bay Area Abstraction, Bay Area Figuration, California Light & Space, Color Field Painting, Contemporary Painting, Funk, Hard-Edge Painting, New York School, and Post-Minimalism. At the Anderson Collection at Stanford University, visitors can explore the breadth of post-war American art and experience the distinctive art collecting vision of the Anderson family.
