The Collection

the collection

Eli and Edythe Broad have been building their collection of postwar and contemporary art over the last five decades. With a belief that the greatest art collections are built when the art is being made, the Broads took to collecting art of their own time.

The Broad is home to 2,000 works in the Broad collection by more than 200 artists, and is one of the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide. The collection features in-depth holdings of influential contemporary artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Jasper Johns, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Yayoi Kusama, Kerry James Marshall, Julie Mehretu, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Cy Twombly, Kara Walker, Andy Warhol, and more, plus an ever-growing representation of younger artists.
