From Gesture to Form. Postwar European and American Art from the Schulhof Collection
January 26–March 18, 2019
Curated by Gražina Subelytė and Karole P. B. Vail




Joan Mitchell, Composition, 1962, oil oil on canvas, 146.1 x 114.3 cm. Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, Hannelore B. and Rudolph B. Schulhof Collection, bequest of Hannelore B. Schulhof, 2012 © Estate of Joan Mitchell.

In 2012, Hannelore B. Schulhof (1922–2012), who collected with her late husband Rudolph R. Schulhof (1912–1999), bequeathed eighty works of postwar European and American art to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation to be housed at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. This exhibition will be an opportunity to view the Schulhof Collection nearly in its entirety. Privileging formal artistic developments, this presentation will provide insights into the art movements and styles that evolved and matured towards the end of World War II through to the 1980s. Abstract imagery, as a quest into issues of color, form and space as well as their interrelationships, characterized the postwar decades, becoming the foundation of the Schulhof Collection. This exhibition will celebrate how, crossing continents and traversing cultures, the Schulhof Collection reflects a multitude of postwar artistic tendencies and a polyphony of voices. In addition to examining the art of postwar decades, the display will also shed light on the Schulhofs’ collecting vision and history.
