Exhibition “From Kandinsky to Pollock” in Florence

18/03/2016

Palazzo Strozzi in Florence presents the exhibition “From Kandinsky to Pollock. The Art of the Guggenheim Collections” which is to take place from March 19 to July 24. More than 100 masterpieces created on both sides of the Atlantics between 1920 and 1960 will be exhibited. Max Ernst, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Marcel Duchamp, Alberto Burri, Man Ray, Francis Bacon, Alexander Calder, Mark Rothko, Lucio Fontana, Jackson Pollock, Jean Dubuffet and many others.

According to Luca Massimo Barbero, the curator of the exhibition, a viewer will be enabled to compare the main representatives of European and American art of the 20th century as seen by two greatest American collectors – Peggy and Solomon Guggenheim.

Palazzo Strozzi is a Florentine palace (palazzo) of the Renaissance period which was built about 500 years ago. It is not by chance that such a large-scale project is to be held here. The case is that before Peggy Guggenheim settled in Venice, it was here that she had organized the first show of her collection for European public in 1949.

Organized by: Palazzo Strozzi Foundation and The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York and Venice
