At a time when a multiplicity of media, techniques and genres is no longer merely one kind of artistic practice but has increasingly come to shape the production of art in general, this private collection is emblematic. It is distinctive in its juxtaposition of sculpture, painting and other artifacts ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day. The collection presents work by, among others, Arnold Böcklin, Victor Brauner, Pieter Brueghel the Elder, Giorgio de Chirico, Francesco Clemente, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, René Magritte, Man Ray and Andy Warhol. These works are being shown together for the first time. The exhibition poses the topical question of art’s actuality across the ages, even while it shares with us its eclectic abundance and the aesthetic goals and tastes of those who brought the collection together. Following its presentation at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the show will travel to the Kunstmuseum Basel.
