Charles Pollock: A Retrospective

Peggy Guggenheim Collection

23 Apr 201513 Sep 2015

The exhibition, dedicated to Charles Pollock (1902, Denver – 1988, Paris), presents a full retrospective of the American abstract painter, elder brother of Jackson Pollock.
Charles Pollock: A Retrospective, curated by Philip Rylands, Director of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, documents Charles’s full career, with most of the material, some of it never before exhibited, being loaned by the Charles Pollock Archives, Paris, thanks to the artist’s widow and daughter as well as other members of the Pollock family.

A small number of works by Jackson Pollock, Thomas Hart Benton and a unique painting by Sanford Pollock will complement Charles’s early years in New York and Washington. Additional loans are coming from members of the Pollock family, from the Archives of American Art/Smithsonian Institution, and other institutions and private collections. Early letters, photos and sketches will document the relations between Charles and Jackson.
