Listen to the introduction.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection will be closed until further notice
By Alessandra Montalbetti, Pinacoteca di Brera
Many contemporary artists, included the most revolutionary, studied or looked at the art before their time. Some of the artists they fell in love with or were inspired by lived centuries ago and used different but equally important media. Some such encounters defy logic, but are accessible because of love: a painting exhibited in a museum, the reproduction of a work of art discovered at a particular moment in life, or fragments from distant cultures one time or the other were able to respond to an artist’s quest.
This new art history lecture series by Alessandra Montalbetti, Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan, marks the beginning of the museum’s educational activities specifically designed for its members. The commitment to our supporters remains steadfast as we continue sharing quality content, albeit from home. The proceeds from the course will support the museum, closed to the public since March 8th and like all Italian museums, continues to face economic hardship during this time.
Thank you for your desire to learn which supports the museum.
