Homage to Tancredi
12 November 2016 – 14 March 2017
Curated by Luca Massimo Barbero

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection pays homage to Tancredi Parmeggiani (1927–1964), a painter of great talent discovered by Peggy Guggenheim in the richly creative cultural environment of Venice in the 1950s. Tancredi made an instant impact as one Italy’s most original painters of his. He was the only artist after Jackson Pollock to be placed under contract by Peggy Guggenheim, who energetically promoted his work, gave him studio space, and organized exhibitions, including a memorable solo show in Palazzo Venier dei Leoni in 1954. With approximately 50 works, the show surveys his Venetian beginnings and his dense production in the 1950s. “In the future,” Peggy stated, “people will appreciate what a great painter Tancredi was.”
