Jackson Pollock, Alchemy, 1947, oil, aluminum, alkyd enamel paint with sand, pebbles, fibers and broken wooden sticks on canvas, 114.6 x 221.3 cm. Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice 76.2553 PG 150 [info]

After more than a year's absence, Jackson Pollock's Alchemy – one the museum’s masterpieces and a masterpiece of American Abstract Expressionism – has returned to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Pollock's work has undergone an extensive cycle of studies at the Opificio delle Pietre Dure of Florence, in collaboration with eleven Italian science institutions engaged in the field of conservation of cultural heritage. The remarkable results will be presented in an interactive and multimedia installation, offering insights into the science of conservation and into Pollock’s working methods. Above all this will be an opportunity to see the painting for the first time in its original splendor after the lengthy operation of surface cleaning.
