Guggenheim Museum Makes 65 Exhibit Catalogues Free Online

The Guggenheim is one of the real standouts in the global modern art arena. The New York-based institution is no light-weight in the area of arts education. They’ve now extended that mission extensively by making dozens of high-quality publications on artists available to anyone with an Internet connection.

The books, art catalogues for major exhibitions at the museum, pop out into a clean, fast virtual book reader. Open Culture points out that the books are also available for download in a number of e-book formats, including ePub and PDF, at Archive.org’s Guggenheim page.

The offerings range from the ubiquitous Alexander Calder to Fernand Léger, from Francis Bacon to Wassily Kandinsky.

They also offer theme and anthology-type books, such as 1954’s “Younger American Painters” and “Amazons of the Avant-Garde” (which seems to be one of the few offerings to feature women artists).
