A staggeringly handsome exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum celebrating the 80th anniversary of the collection. Beautifully mounted with superb treasure after superb treasure it is a joy to see. It gives deeper insight into the non-objective and the abstract schools of art, and how Solomon Guggenheim with his cohort put the collection together. It should not be missed!

Don’t miss the current show, “Visionaries.” 170 works from the Museum’s collection – Calder, Duchamp, Klee, Mondrian, Picasso, Kandinsky… and more – organized around its six early patron collectors: Justin Thannhauser, Karl Nierendorf, Peggy Guggenheim, Katherine Dreier, Hilla Rebay and museum founder Solomon R. Guggenheim. The collection sweeps down the sloping Frank Lloyd Wright ramp, lots of space around each painting or sculpture, descriptions of each work of art on a nearby wall so your view is not blocked. A brilliant collection in a great space. (We skipped the 24 karat gold working toilet – too long a line.)
