The Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York City was built between 1955 and 1959 and designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The name of the museum is to honour Solomon Robert Guggenheim (1861 – 1949), an American art collector and philanthropist. In 1937 he established the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation to foster the appreciation of modern art. The Solomon Guggenheim sheltered modern and contemporary international art.
