The Howard and Cindy Rachofsky Collection consists of artwork by international artists working in the last century. The collection focuses on two general themes: artwork from the 1960s that explores that nature of sculpture and painting, with special emphasis on Italian art associated with the Arte Povera movement, and contemporary work that explores notions of identity and the self. Of particular importance to the collection are works by Italian artists Piero Manzoni, Lucio Fontana, Alighiero Boetti, Giulio Paolini, Mario Merz, Marisa Merz, Giuseppe Penone, and Michelangelo Pistoletto. Other artists with significant holdings in The Rachofksy Collection are Janine Antoni, Robert Gober, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Robert Ryman, Donald Judd, Marc Quinn, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Tom Friedman, Kiki Smith, Richard Prince, Doris Salcedo, David Hammons, Mona Hatoum, and Mark Grotjahn.
