The Menil Collection is home to one of the world’s greatest privately assembled collections of twentieth-century art, including painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, and photography.

John and Dominique de Menil began collecting in the 1940s. They were drawn particularly to Surrealism and the schools of abstract painting that developed in the early twentieth century in their native Paris. Accordingly, they acquired works by such well-known artists as Georges Braque, Paul Cézanne, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, and Georges Rouault. In addition, a significant collection of works by artists not commonly represented in collections in the United States features Christian Bérard, Jean Fautrier, Louis Fernández, and Wols (Alfred Otto Wolfgang Schulze). “ A picture lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes of the sensitive observer.”

The Menil Collection remains an actively collecting institution. Cloud Cuckoo Land by Xenz. Known for his grafitti murals, Xenz presents a new body of work based on an exotic world that lurks within the artist's imagination.
