Homage to Twrkv opens at Peggy Guggenheim, Venice

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection presents "Postwar ERA: A Recent History" with a special homage to painter Jack Tworkov and tribute to sculptor Claire Falkenstein. Drawn from the collection of Peggy Guggenheim as well as acquisitions by the Guggenheim Foundation after her death, the works on view—some of which are infrequently exhibited—will be grouped and matched based on theme, style, and affinity. The exhibition draws on a sensibility that goes beyond canonical art movements and trends, comparable to the refined approach that Peggy Guggenheim learned and cultivated through her activity as a far-sighted and vanguard collector. This context also offers insight into the work of two artists in the foundation’s collection: Jack Tworkov (1900–82) and Claire Falkenstein (1908–97).
