The Broad Collection | Third Floor Galleries
In its third floor galleries, The Broad displays a robust and changing selection of works from the Broad collection. The galleries feature works by major artists who came to prominence in the 1950s, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cy Twombly. Pop art of the 1960s—an area of great depth in the collection—is represented through works by Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha and Andy Warhol, among others. Moving into the 1980s, the installation presents a rich concentration of works by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kara Walker, Keith Haring, Barbara Kruger and Jeff Koons.
