Henry Pearlman | The Collector

The story of Henry Pearlman’s collection is a distinctly American one: a rags-to-riches tale of a self-made businessman who pursued his passion for modern art alongside other lifelong passions, including baseball and chess.

Major New Sculpture Commissioned for Museum Entrance

The Museum’s front lawn has been home to a number of compelling works of art, from Pablo Picasso’s Head of a Woman to Magdalena Abakanowicz’s Big Figures to such short-term installations as Doug Aitken’s migration (empire) and, most recently, two remarkable sculptures by Alexander Calder. Now the lawn is poised to receive a new commission designed especially for the site by Doug and Mike Starn.

The Henry and Rose Pearlman Collection

Over three decades, Henry Pearlman assembled one of the finest collections of modern art remaining in private hands.  Explore the collection that has resided at the Princeton University Art Museum since 1976.
