New York’s Museum of Modern Art is one of the world’s premier modern and contemporary art museums. Since its founding in 1929, the museum has collected iconic works such as Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, and Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans. The museum’s history is closely tied to that of the famous Rockefeller family of the Standard Oil company. MoMA’s existence is largely the result of Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, her son and future US vice president Nelson Rockefeller was president of the museum, and other members of the family have served as board members or donated to the museum as well.
