Peggy Guggenheim Collection

To our followers in New York—"Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future" is now on view at @guggenheim. The show features more than 165 bold and radical artworks by Hilma af Klint in the first major museum exhibition of her work in the United States. A contemporary of Kandinsky, Mondrian, and Malevich, af Klint began her explorations of non-representational painting years before her male counterparts, but her work has only become known recently.

"I paint and sculpt to get a grip on reality, to protect myself". Born on this day Alberto Giacometti, Swiss sculptor, painter, draughtsman and printmaker, renowned for his elongated and dematerialized figures. Although he was initially drawn to the Surrealist circles, in fall 1934 he changed his working practice by abandoning sculpting from the imagination and beginning to work from the model, reality and nature. This lies at the heart of Giacometti’s sculpture "Piazza", completed in the late 1940s. This is an early example of his celebrated mature work and is part of our collection #AlbertoGiacometti #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

Born on this day the Italian artist Carla Accardi. In 1947 in Rome Accardi signed the manifesto of the 'Forma 1' group with such artists as Dorazio, Guerrini, Perilli, and Turcato. During the 1950s she developed a reductivist visual language that became more and more abstract. She focused on signs and limited her palette to black and white. In the 1960s Accardi joined the 'Continuità' group and then she began to reintegrate color into her work, making references to metropolitan culture and optical illusion. Accardi continued to explore new possibilities by experimenting with diverse media, eventually beginning to paint on plastic transparent supports, which emphasised the luminous surface of the painting. She took part in the Venice Biennale several times, appearing first in 1964 and again in 1976 and 1978. From our collection her “Blu concentrico”, 1960 #CarlaAccardi #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

"Painting is the art of colors and
forms, freely conceived, and it is also an act of will and of creation, and contrary to architecture, it is an
irrational art, predominated by imagination and fantasy, which is to say, poetry. So I took two hundred
good canvases that I had painted from life and I brought them up to the attic.” #OsvaldoLicini #PeggyGuggenheimCollection

"Tancredi, through his painting, creates a new poetic philosophy for those who have neither telescopes nor rocket" - Peggy Guggenheim. Born on this day Tancredi Parmeggiani, among the most original and prolific Italian painters of the 20th cent. Tancredi was the only artist, after Jackson Pollock, whom Peggy placed under contract, promoting his work, making it known to museums and collectors in the USA, and organizing shows, including one in her own home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, in 1954. In 2016 the museum celebrated him with a major retrospective curated by Luca Massimo Barbero. #Tancredi #PeggyGuggenheimCollection
