American Art 1850-1960
Masterpieces from the Phillips Collection in Washington

 
Mart Rovereto
05 June 2010 / 12 September 2010
The Mart presents a selection of works never before seen in Italy, with the masterpieces of the great exponents of American painting, from the second half of the 19th century to the early 1960s, from the important Phillips Collection of Washington.
 
T

he exhibition provides a unique opportunity for a fresh and amply-illustrated reflection on the complex developments that led American painting to evolve along an autonomous route with regard to European tradition. An evolution towards modernity which after the Second World War, ensured that American art became an undisputed point of reference for all art internationally.
The identity of American artistic culture strengthened over the decades and exploded in the post-war years with the most radical phase of Abstract Expressionism, thanks to numerous artists of great narrative power, able to propose an independent expressive register.
This exhibition offers an unprecedented opportunity in Italy to relive this discovery through the works of all its leading exponents. There will be over 100 works in the exhibition, with masterpieces by artists like John Sloan, Arthur Dove, Stuart Davis, Adolph Gottlieb, Philip Guston, Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Clyfford Still and Mark Rothko.
