Willem de Kooning and Italy

Venice, Italy
Kirker Holidays
Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice
16 April - 15 September 2024

One of the most innovative and influential artists of the twentieth century, this exhibition at the Gallerie dell'Accademia will be the first to explore the impact of Willem de Kooning’s two Italian visits, which took place in 1959 and 1969. Due to open to coincide with the start of the 60th Art Biennale, the exhibition will display the art he made in Italy, alongside later paintings, drawings, and sculptures spanning from the late 1950s to the 1980s.
