Pollock and the New York School exhibition at the Vittoriano.
Anti-conformism, psychological introspection and experimentation: Pollock's action painting and the greatest representatives of the New York School arrive in Rome.
Through about 50 masterpieces - including the famous Number 27, Pollock's large canvas, over 3m long, made iconic by the masterly balance between the brushstrokes of black and the fusion of the clearest colors - vivid colors, harmony of shapes, subjects and abstract representations immerse observers in a magnificent artistic context: abstract expressionism.
Under the auspices of the Institute for the history of the Italian Risorgimento, under the patronage of the Lazio Region and Roma Capitale - Department of Cultural Growth, the exhibition is produced and organized by the Arthemisia Group in collaboration with The Whitney Museum of America Art, New York is curated by David Breslin, Carrie Springer with Luca Beatrice.
