February 20–May 30, 2010

Central to many artistic experiments during the early 20th century, the debate between the figurative and the abstract fascinated collectors Solomon R. Guggenheim and his niece Peggy. Held at ARCA in Vercelli while the temporary galleries of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection are under renovation,Peggy and Solomon R. Guggenheim: The Avant-Gardes of Abstraction traces a pictorial journey through their holdings, from Paul Cézanne to Emilio Vedova, Robert Delaunay to Georges Braque, and Jean Dubuffet to Piet Mondrian, spanning the early, middle, and late phases of this movement. On view at Arca dell'ex Chiesa di San Marco, Vercelli, Italy, this exhibition is the third in a trilogy of exhibitions organized by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection for the Piedmont region and the city of Vercelli.
