The Moderna Museet (Museum of Modern Art) is Sweden's principal museum of national and international modern and contemporary art, containing some 50,000 examples of both Swedish and international modern and contemporary art and sculpture. In addition, the museum holds a huge collection of photographs dating from the first half of the 19th century to the present day. This new guide, published in association with the museum to mark the opening of its new building in February 1998, contains extended commentaries and full-page color illustrations of nearly 80 key works from the museum's permanent collections. These are given an added dimension through the use of quotes by the artists themselves, or their contemporaries, which appear alongside major works.
