The exhibition Postwar Era. A Recent History. Homages to Jack Tworkov and Claire Falkenstein takes a fresh look at American and European art from post-World War II up until 1979. More than ninety paintings and sculptures from the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, some rarely exhibited before, are grouped by theme, style, affinity, and with less attention given to chronology than usual.
Visitors are also offered an insight into the work of two artists from the Foundation’s Collection: Jack Tworkov (1900-1982) and Claire Falkenstein (1908-1997). The latter is renowned for having created the entrance gates to the museum, commissioned in 1960 by Peggy herself for her former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, now the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
The exhibition is curated by Luca Massimo Barbero.
