On May 8th, the first Italian retrospective dedicated to Arshile Gorky opens in Venice, at the Cá Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art. Scheduled until September 22nd, the exhibition, curated by Gabriella Belli and Edith Devaney With the collaboration of The Arshile Gorky Foundation, presents the works of one of the most significant artists of American art of the twentieth century, from the early work of the Twenties, in which his approach to painting is a deep debtor of Cézanne, up to the stage where all these incitements converge into a powerful and singular vision. Arshile Gorky: 1904-1948 proposes to underline how, from the early stages of his career, when he is apparently influenced by the work of the great masters of the past, Gorky’s artistic voice is already present, and goes strengthened as his work progresses. On display approx 80 artworks from prestigious international and institutional collections: among them the London Tate, the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Center Pompidou in Paris, Israel Museum of Jerusalem. Alongside the paintings, a selection of artworks on paper that demonstrate the incredible hand of the artist.
