Arte europea 1949-1979

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection presents a selection of works from its holdings of postwar European painting and sculpture. Peggy lived in Palazzo Venier from 1949 to 1979, roughly the period covered by this exhibition, which is therefore a celebration of her Venetian life. It documents how she continued to collect even after her withdrawal from New York, center of the artistic avant-garde, in 1947. The exhibition closes with a tribute to Marion Richardson Taylor (d. 2010), a versatile American artist. Her eclectic path encompassed abstract expressionist murals, cubist still lives, non-figurative portraits and intimately sized drawings. Constantly in search of a new vocabulary to represent the people and the places that impressed her, Taylor had the courage to rethink her art continually. Places as different as Barcelona, Egypt, Japan, and Saint-Rémy in Provence all had a strong impact on Taylor. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection dedicates to the artist her first solo-exhibition with works donated in 1998 to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation.
