The Rachofsky Collection consists of artwork by international artists working in the last century. The collection focuses on two general themes: artwork that explores the nature of sculpture and painting, with special emphasis on Minimalism and 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, Alberto Burri, 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, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Tom Friedman, Kiki Smith, Jiro Takamatsu, Katsuo Shiraga, Richard Prince, Mona Hatoum and Mark Grotjahn.
