Rooted in the greatest century of growth and change humanity has ever known – 1850 to 1950 – The Wolfsonian traces the odyssey from agrarian to urban, colonial empires to Cold War superpowers, the first spike of the Transcontinental Railroad to the advent of television. Offering a unique and personal take on the museum’s rich and varied collection of cultural artifacts, this handy book offers both a guide to Wolfsonian highlights and a glimpse into the art of collecting.
Mitchell ‘Micky’ Wolfson, Jr. is an avid collector of modern art and design and the founder of The Wolfsonian–FIU.
