LOCATION: Peggy Guggenheim Collection
Until 8 September 2013, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice offers the chance to discover the beginning of the artistic career and the first works, little known in Italy, of the American artist Robert Motherwell. In fact, the retrospective ROBERT MOTHERWELL is devoted to him: THE FIRST COLLAGES that trace the career of a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism and papier collé.
44 works are on display, coming from major museums and private collections around the world, all dating back to the first decade of his artistic career, and all strictly collages or works on paper.
The exhibition is also a tribute to Peggy Guggenheim. Friendship, patronage, motivation and promotion are all aspects of that generosity that characterizes the support Peggy gave to Motherwell and other American artists at the beginning of their careers.
