Tancredi. A Retrospective
With over 90 works, this much-awaited retrospective marks the return to Venice of Tancredi Parmeggiani, among the most original and prolific Italian painters of the second half of the 20th century. Tancredi was the only artist, after Jackson Pollock, whom Peggy Guggenheim placed under contract, promoting his work, making it known to museums and collectors in the USA, and organising shows, including one in her own home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, in 1954. More than 60 years later Tancredi returns to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, his reputation now beyond question, with remarkable paintings that recreate, step by step in intimate galleries, between creative fury and lyrical expressionism, the brief but meteoric trajectory of this great post-war painter.
