Broad Foundation Buys 570 Beuys Works

“The Broad Art Foundation has purchased 570 works by the late German artist Joseph Beuys, an influential thinker and socially conscious force in avant-garde 20th century art. The acquisition comprises a nearly complete collection of the artist’s ‘multiples’ — groups of mostly three-dimensional works produced in more than one edition to make them widely available. These works are regarded as the essence of his production.”
