For nearly 40 years, Karl and Jennifer Salatka have filled their house with art that captures their love and interest. Because of their generosity, many of these works now call Carnegie Museum of Art home.
Their collection of significant modern and contemporary treasures ranges from painting to photography, and drawings to sculpture. Including examples of Abstract Expressionism, Pop, and geometric abstraction, these works enrich the museum’s presentation of postwar art.
This exhibition celebrates the generosity of Karl and Jennifer Salatka, who have made generous gifts to Carnegie Museum of Art’s collection for the last 15 years, drawing from their impressive holdings of post–World War II art. This exhibition highlights signature works by such acclaimed modern and contemporary artists as Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Jasper Johns, Anselm Kiefer, Roy Lichtenstein, Elizabeth Murray, Gerhard Richter, Ed Ruscha, Frank Stella, and Andy Warhol.
