The National Gallery of Art recently acquired Girl on a Swing (2004) by Cecily Brown, a key painting in the artist’s oeuvre, and Opposite of White, v. 2 (Large) (A) (2006–2007) by Roni Horn, a major example of her cast-glass works, the sculptural series for which she is best known. The acquisition of Girl on a Swing was made possible by the Collectors Committee, which also supported the purchase of Opposite of White, v. 2 (Large) (A), with additional funds from Howard and Roberta Ahmanson, John and Mary Pappajohn, Denise and Andrew Saul, Constance R. Caplan, Lenore S. and Bernard A. Greenberg Fund, Kyle J. and Sharon Krause, and Mitchell and Emily Rales. Opposite of White, v. 2 (Large) (A) is scheduled to go on view in the atrium of the East Building by late 2015, and Girl on a Swing will be installed when the East Building galleries reopen in the fall of 2016.
