Don’t miss the chance to rediscover the work in a new light after a multiyear conservation treatment that involved renaming the painting to more accurately reflect the model’s garment.

Mary Ann Hoag, Head of Exhibition Lighting at the Guggenheim—“I place the shadows of a sculpture carefully, low and off to its side so the viewer first perceives the sculpture’s outline against the museum’s white background. Shadows are crucial for the viewer to perceive depth on the sculpture’s surface, but they also mimic the larger overall shape on another plane and are slightly distorted.” #FrankLloydWrightFridays

“…They are by far the most beautiful photographs that have been made of my things, and, most important, at the same time they have a reality in themselves; each one is a creation in itself, one more beautiful than the other.”—Alberto Giacometti, in a letter to iconic photographer and designer Herbert Matter. These riveting black-and-white images were recently acquired into the Guggenheim’s archives, and provide a glimpse of the special connection between the two artists that formed a strong artistic and personal bond after coming into contact in 1950. View these photographs in #Giacometti through September 12. Plan your visit at guggenheim.org/giacometti.

“During my visit to see the ‘Josef Albers in Mexico’ exhibition, the winter afternoon light had cast a particularly soft shadow across the museum’s exterior. The play of light on form perfectly captured the sculptural nature of Frank Lloyd Wright’s design.”—Gugg visitor Hagen Scutt #FrankLloydWrightFridays

Today's artist is miniaturist Amanda Kelly (@pandaminiatures)—"Artist studios are fascinating because they give insight into how the artist thinks and works. During my research on Alberto #Giacometti, I found a recreation of his Paris studio which inspired me. I created a miniature of his worktable complete with dirty rags, clay dust, incomplete sculptures and paintbrushes. I wanted to capture the essence and atmosphere of Giacometti's artistry." Medium: mixed medium, 1:12 scale miniature. #Guggenheim

Happy birthday #JennyHolzer! For more than forty years, Holzer’s incisive work has drawn on the explosive power of the written word. Incorporating strategies of mass-communication and the politics of public space, her LED displays, carved-stone benches, projections, and more tackle some of the most pressing issues of our time. Holzer’s large-scale light projection “For the Guggenheim” (2008), cast the artist’s own writings and selections from poems by Wisława Szymborska onto the newly restored exterior of Frank Lloyd Wright’s curving architecture, creating a compelling environment for looking, discussing, and gathering.

Did you #GuessTheArtist correctly? Here’s a full view of Marcel Duchamp’s “Nude (Study), Sad Young Man on a Train” (1911–12), from @guggenheim_venice’s collection. Born today in 1887, this work shows a period when Duchamp was exploring Cubism, though still adhering to the conventions of painting and narrative structure. Shortly after the execution of this and similar works, Duchamp lost interest in Cubism and developed his eccentric vocabulary of mechanomorphic elements that foreshadowed aspects of Dada.
