« Charles Pollock: A Retrospective » at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice.
Italy’s first exhibition and major retrospective dedicated to Charles Pollock, older brother of Jackson Pollock gathers together over 120 paintings, drawings, photos and documents, including several that have never been exhibited previously.
The story of Charles Pollock bears witness to the “American century”. From New York, where he studied art to Paris where he died, this retrospective retraces the footsteps of an artist, who represents a testament to the cultural richness of America during 1930s. From regionalism to abstraction, different periods of Pollock’s work recount the artistic revolution of a sensitive man, in the midst of an unfolding revolution.
Until 14th September. B.D. www.guggenheim-venice.it
