Peggy Guggenheim Collection Profile Information

  • Born on this day the Spanish artist Juan Gris, closely connected to Cubism and friend of Picasso and Braque. In 1913 Gris began using the technique of ‘papier collé’. By 1914 Gris’ handling of the technique was personal and sophisticated. In his work from our collection "Bottle of Rum and Newspaper" (1914) the pasted elements overlap and intermesh with one another in relationships calculated with mathematical rigor. These collaged papers cover the entire surface of the canvas, simultaneously forming an abstract composition and serving as a multilayered support for naturalistic details. #JuanGris #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

  • 🇮🇹 "Tutto quello che ho fatto di importante potrebbe stare in una piccola valigia" - Marcel Duchamp. L’opera del poliedrico e dissacrante artista francese "Scatola in una valigia (Boîte-en-Valise)" , tra i capolavori della Collezione Peggy Guggenheim, si trova oggi all’Opificio delle Pietre Dure e Laboratori di Restauro di Firenze per un importante intervento di studio e conservazione. La "Boîte-en-Valise" è la prima di un’edizione deluxe di venti valigette da viaggio di Louis Vuitton, che raccolgono ciascuna sessantanove riproduzioni e miniaturizzazioni di celebri lavori di Duchamp e contiene una dedica dell’artista a Peggy. A settembre l’opera tornerà “a casa” pronta per essere esposta a Palazzo Venier dei Leoni #PeggyGuggenheimCollection #MarcelDuchamp

🇬🇧 "Everything important that I have done can be put in a little suitcase" - Marcel Duchamp. "Box in a Valise (Boîte-en-Valise)" created by the multifaceted and irreverent French artist is among the masterpieces preserved at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and is located today at the Opificio delle Pietre Dure e Laboratori di Restauro in Florence for a significant intervention of study and conservation. "Boîte-en-Valise" is the first of a deluxe edition of twenty Louis Vuitton travel cases, which each contain sixty-nine reproductions and miniaturizations of famous artworks by Duchamp and includes a dedication to Peggy Guggenheim.

  • "I prefer to see with closed eyes". Born on this day Josef Albers, German-American painter, poet, sculptor, teacher, and theoretician. Albers was instrumental in bringing the tenets of European modernism, particularly those associated with the Bauhaus, to America. His legacy as a teacher of artists, as well as his extensive theoretical work proposing that color, rather than form, is the primary medium of pictorial language, profoundly influenced the development of modern art in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s. In 2018 the Peggy Guggenheim Collection presented a major tribute to the artist "Josef Albers in Mexico", curated by Lauren Hinkson #JosefAlbers #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

  • 🇮🇹 “Sono nato nella natura”, recita il primo verso di una poesia di Jean (Hans) Arp, artista franco - tedesco, tra i fondatori del Dada, a cui la Collezione Peggy Guggenheim dedica una grande mostra, in apertura il 13 aprile. Oggi più che mai, in questa giornata in cui il mondo protesta contro la crisi climatica, questa sua dichiarazione ha un valore alto e profondo. Non distruggiamo quella natura che ci ha creati. #FridaysForFuture #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

🇬🇧 “I was born in nature” wrote Jean (Hans) Arp, one of the most important and multifaceted artists of the modern era, to whom the museum dedicates a major retrospective opening on April 13. On this very day when people around the world are demonstrating to raise the awareness of climate change, Arp’s statement has a profound meaning. Let’s not destroy what Mother Nature has created. #FridaysForFuture #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

  • In 1943 Peggy Guggenheim included the Surrealist artist Leonor Fini (1906 – 1997) in "Exhibition by 31 Women" organized in her museum-gallery Art of This Century. She exhibited Fini’s “The Shepherdess of the Sphinxes” (1941). The painting depicts a powerful tribal like woman, looking over a group of smaller sphinxes with her commanding staff. The image of the sphinx is a recurring motif in Fini’s oeuvre, which appeared in many of her paintings during the 1940s. This work is still in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection today. #LeonorFini #5WomenArtists

  • "All ideas grow out of other ideas". Born on this day the Indian-born British sculptor Anish Kapoor, one of the most influential artists of his generation. He creates abstract works that have a powerful and physical presence, but he builds into them seemingly immaterial dimensions. Whether with blazingly reflective metal surfaces or dark, plush, seemingly infinite interiors, his works dispense multiple visual thrills and mysteries. In our Nasher Sculpture Garden his black granite sculpture 'Untitled', 2007. #AnishKapoor #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

  • “Hilma af Klint kept her groundbreaking, exuberant paintings largely private and, convinced the world was not yet ready to understand her work, stipulated that it not be shown for 20 years following her death. I prefer to think of this decision as a deliberate act of agency—af Klint was deeply aware of how boundary defying her works were, and she was determined to find an audience that would be receptive to them, even if it meant waiting.”—Tracey Bashkoff, Director of Collections and Senior Curator. Today March 8 curators Tracey Bashkoff and David Horowitz (@david_horowitz) will answer your questions about Hilma af Klint from 12-1 pm EST. Check out @guggenheim IG Story! ⬆️

  • "Art is the path to being spiritual". Born on this day Piet Mondrian, co-founder of the De Stijl group, with van Doesburg and Vantongerloo. In 1909 – 1911 during lengthy sojourns on the coast of Dutch Zeeland Mondrian first treated the theme of the sea in his naturalistic works. He then assimilated and adapted the Cubism in Paris soon after his arrival there in the winter of 1911–12. In the summer of 1914 he returned to the Netherlands and probably in the following war years worked on the studies of the sea. The oval format and grid structure used in these works are devices derived from Cubism. They serve respectively to resolve the problem of the compositional interference of the corners and to organize and unify the picture’s elements. From our collection his “Ocean 5”, 1915 #PietMondrian #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

  • “She [Peggy] was so - how can I say - devoted to me as a person for having given her these gates” - Claire Falkenstein (1908-1997), an experimental artist who explored many different media. In 1960, Peggy Guggenheim commissioned Falkenstein to create the entrance gates to her home Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. Today one of the most enduring memories of visitors to the museum are of Falkenstein’s metal and glass gates. #ClaireFalkenstein #WomensHistoryMonth #5WomenArtists #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

  • 🇬🇧 Born on this day the Italian artist Afro Libio Basaldella, aka Afro. He studied art and later taught mosaic in Venice. Most likely inspired by the radiant ambience of “La Serenissima” and its pictorial tradition, Afro’s paintings emanate an underlying luminosity, as his work “Yellow Country”, 1957, (right side) now on view on the occasion of the exhibition "From Gesture to Form. Postwar European and American Art from the Schulhof Collection". #AfroBasaldella #PeggyGuggenheimCollection #SchulhofCollection

🇮🇹 Nasceva oggi Afro Libio Basaldella, in arte Afro. Fratello di Mirko Basaldella, dopo gli studi artistici Afro insegna mosaico a Venezia. I suoi dipinti sprigionano una luminosità di fondo, con tutta probabilità ispirata dalla radiosa atmosfera della Serenissima e dalla sua tradizione pittorica. Nella sua opera "Paese giallo", 1957 (nell'immagine a dex.), le forme assumono un carattere lirico, quasi poetico, al confine tra tracce di figurazione e completa astrazione. L'opera è oggi esposta in occasione della mostra "Dal gesto alla forma. Arte europea e americana del dopoguerra nella Collezione Schulhof" #AfroBasaldella #PeggyGuggenheimCollection #SchulhofCollection
