Robert Delaunay, Simultaneous Windows (2nd Motif, 1st Part) (Les fenêtres simultanées [2e motif, 1re partie]), 1912 (Detail)

Featuring works by Paul Cézanne, Robert Delaunay, Vasily Kandinsky, and Pablo Picasso, among others, this exhibition explores the intriguing parallels between a diverse group of art enthusiasts whose lives intersected over several decades: museum founders Solomon R. Guggenheim and Hilla Rebay, visionaries Katherine S. Dreier and Peggy Guggenheim, and eminent gallerists Karl Nierendorf and Justin K. Thannhauser. These six collectors brought some of the most significant artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries to light. Over the years their personal compilations have been incorporated into one comprehensive array of avant-garde art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Their foresight and connoisseurship helped to define the scope of the Guggenheim’s holdings of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and modern art. Visions of Modernity is organized by Megan Fontanella, Assistant Curator, Collections and Provenance, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
