The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte features more than 1,400 works of art created by major figures of 20th-century modernism including Alberto Giacometti, Joan Miro, Edward Degas, Pablo Picasso, Jean Tinguely, Max Ernst, Andy Warhol, Le Corbusier, Sol LeWitt, Edgar Degas, Nicolas de Stael and Barbara Hepworth. The Bechtler is the second museum in the United States designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta. The Firebird, a public art work on the Bechtler plaza created by French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle, is a fanciful counterpoint to the museum’s classic design.
