From Rauschenberg to Jeff Koons: The Ileana Sonnabend Collection

From May 31, 2014 to January 4, 2015, Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art, Venice, will host select works by 20th century icons from the collection of Ileana Sonnabend.

Granted in 2013 as a long-term loan to the Foundation Civic Museum of Venice, the Sonnabend Collection represents a holding of inestimable cultural value.

Displayed periodically (a selection of the finest works is on permanent display on the first floor), the collection includes works by artists discovered by Ileana Sonnabend (1914 – 2007) – together with Peggy Guggenheim, perhaps the greatest talent scout of the late 20th century – and promoted in memorable exhibitions in her galleries, providing space for the most advanced experimentation in art: from Neo Dada to Pop Art, Minima Art to Arte Povera, Conceptual art to Neo Expressionism and contemporary photographic art

Some of the great names of 20th century art stand out: Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Dine, Tom Wesselmann, ma anche Robert
