Visitors can flip through pages of classic titles such as Alexander Calder: A Retrospective Exhibition, published in 1964; Lawrence Alloway’s groundbreaking 1963 catalogue Six Painters and the Object; or theSolomon R. Guggenheim Collection of Non-Objective Paintings, one of the museum’s first publications.”
