Postwar Era. A Recent History. Homages to Jack Tworkov and Claire Falkenstein

Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Dorsoduro 701, Venice, Italy

The exhibition offers a fresh perspective on American and European art in the period between two critical dates—the end of World War II through 1979.

Drawn from the collection of Peggy Guggenheim as well as acquisitions by the Foundation after her death, the works—some of which are infrequently exhibited—will be grouped and matched based on theme, style, affinity and a less-than-usual attention to chronology.

The exhibition draws on a sensibility that goes beyond canonical art movements and trends, comparable to the refined approach that Peggy Guggenheim learned and cultivated through her activity as a collector, both far-sighted and vanguard. This context also offers insight into the work of two artists in the Foundation’s collections: Jack Tworkov (1900–1982) and Claire Falkenstein (1908–1997). The latter is celebrated for her entrance gates to Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, commissioned by Peggy Guggenheim for her former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, now the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, in 1960, and which will undergo conservation in time for this exhibition.
