Published on February 4, 2016

After enthusiastically greeting the "Divina Bellezza" we are now anxiously awaiting another great exhibition, one of the most exciting in 2016, organised by the Palazzo Strozzi Foundation. This will enchant us with over 100 masterpieces of European and American art created between the 1920s and the 1960s, embodied by the American art collectors Peggy and Solomon Guggenheim. From March 19th to July 24th Florence will dream, thanks to the exhibition entitled "From Kandinsky to Pollock. The great art of the Guggenheims." The exhibition that will go to the soul of post-World War II neo-avant-gardes in that constant dialogue between European and American artists. Curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, the exhibition will consist of a comparison of important works by European masters of modern art such as Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Alberto Burri, Emilio Vedova, Jean Dubuffe and Lucio Fontana. There will also be important paintings by some of the greatest American artists of the fifties, such as Jackson Pollock, Marc Rothko and Roy Lichtenstein. The bond between the city of Florence and Peggy Guggenheim began in February 1949 when she arrived in Europe as a very young girl. The exhibition will celebrate that special bond and take us back to that exciting period in 20th century art.
