About the exhibition
Over 50 masterpieces belonging to the Thannhauser collection and created by some of the most eminent masters of the Impressionist art are the protagonists of the exhibition “Guggenheim. The Thannhauser Collection. From Van Gogh to Picasso”, on display in the spaced of Palazzo Reale. Starting from works by Impressionists, Post-Impressionists such as Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh up to works from the avant-gardes in the early 1900s, the creations on display include also a selection of works by Pablo Picasso.
La collection – which has been created by art merchant Justin K. Thannhauser and his wife Hilde Thannhauser, and donated to the Guggenheim Museum of New York in 1965 – reaches Italy for the very first time before being moved once again to New York. Its extraordinary variety of masterpieces allow visitors from all around the world to admire works of art that are particularly noteworthy and impossible to see elsewhere.
