20th Century Sculpture


Walter and Leonore Annenberg left an outstanding collection of sculpture at Sunnylands. Visitors to the Center & Gardens can enjoy several of these works, including ones by Alberto Giacometti, Auguste Rodin, and Étienne Hajdúania.

In 1976 Walter Annenberg wrote, "Ultimately, Sunnylands will be turned over to the public and I naturally take care in the selection of acquisitions for this long-range responsibility."

As part of this vision, some items from the collection are installed at the Center for public viewing and education. Included are significant works of sculpture dating primarily from the 20th century.
