Explore the collections online
A selection of the permanent collection is viewable online! The Grey Art Gallery is the proud steward of the New York University Art Collection, which is primarily composed of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century works. One of the collection’s particular strengths is American painting from the 1940s to the present, with works by well known artists such as Romare Bearden, Elaine de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb, Kenneth Noland, and Ad Reinhardt.

Another is the Abby Weed Grey Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art—truly an unparalleled and unique resource—which includes some of the largest institutional holdings of Iranian, Indian, and Turkish modern art outside those countries.
