The current exhibition “Visionaries: Creating a Modern Guggenheim” is an showing of the permanent collection from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice. Celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Solomon R. Guggenheim foundation this exhibit includes 170 pieces. The visionaries are the art dealers who collected the new avant-garde art pieces coming out of Europe in the late 19th century through the mid 20th century. These visionaries ultimately gave their collections in whole or in part to the Guggenheim Foundation. Notable in this collection is the large number of Vasily Kandinsky paintings and Jackson Pollock’s Alchemy (1947) which is being shown in the United States for the first time in almost 50 years. There are also 25 works rarely displayed outside the Venice Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
