che trasforma Venezia in un mondo magico
From June 1st the Ca’ Pesaro museum is going to exhibit the important works of the Sonnabend Collection of New York.
The exhibition marks the first step in a long-term collaboration with the Sonnabend Collection Foundation, and offers an extraordinary opportunity to enrich the city’s 20th century art collections and the permanent displays at Ca’ Pesaro, which thanks to the works from the Ileana Sonnabend collection, will be able to offer its visitors a more comprehensive itinerary with plenty of masterpieces from the history of art of whole of the 20th century.
Ileana Sonnabend was one of the greatest and most influential discovers of artistic talent of the late 20th century, known and appreciated for her intuition, strength of character, ground-breaking vision and for that eclecticism of taste and thinking that enable her to understand and promote all that was new in American and European art. Created over many years and a material reflection of her commitment to supporting young artists and the avant-garde movements of the 20th century.
The Sonnabend Collection picks up exactly at the point in which Ca’ Pesaro ended its collecting spree and relationship with the Biennale, and will lead the visitor past a series of works of the highest artistic quality forming part of the principal experimental schools of the late 20th century through over 70 iconic works of the period.
