NEW YORK CITY | The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, better known as ‘The Guggenheim’, is an art museum in Manhattan’s Upper East Side with a focus on Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, early Modern and contemporary art. It’s a hugely popular museum, with over 1.2 million people visiting in 2013.

The iconic building that houses the museum’s collection was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and completed in 1959 and has been described as a ‘monument to Modernism’. It’s a unique building with a spiral ramp that rises up to a domed skylight. While the main collection is displayed in New York, the museum also has branches in Bilbao, Venice and Abu Dhabi.

The museum’s collection began with Solomon R. Guggenheim’s personal collection, and has expanded greatly via the purchase of other collections and selected works. Featured artists include the likes of Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Marcel Duchamp. As well as the museum’s permanent collection, there are also a number of temporary exhibits held each year. For example 2018’s Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away, was an exhibition whee the artist used personal narratives and varied mediums to address themes such as religion, capitalism, and artistic authorship.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
