Arshile Gorky: 1904 – 1948

Ca’ Pesaro, Santa Croce 2076, Venice, Italy

This is the first exhibition in Italy devoted to this celebrated and influential figure of 20th century American art.

Arshile Gorky: 1904-1948” seeks to highlight that Gorky’s artistic voice is present from the earliest stages of his career, when he was seemingly in thrall to the work of past masters, and strengthened as his work progressed. The final section of the exhibition will illustrate the extent to which Gorky’s pictorial energy and imagination merged with his renewed encounter with nature in the landscapes of Virginia and Connecticut over the summers of 1942-1945. A strong selection of these mature masterworks, with their array of surreal, abstract, and figurative, reveal an artist at the very height of his extraordinary creative power.

The exhibition, structured as a comprehensive retrospective survey, includes a selection of Gorky’s paintings and works on paper borrowed from significant international institutions and private collections.
