Mark Tobey - Threading Light

Add to bookmark Add to favourities

From May 6 to September 10, at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice, 70 paintings by Mark Tobey, one of the major American artists emerging in the 1940s' in the context of Abstract expressionism, will be exhibited accompanied by an illustrated publication. Precursor of some of the stylistic innovations introduced later by New York School Artists such as Jackson Pollock, Tobey has distinguished himself for his unique calligraphic representations that affect the fusion of Western and Eastern culture.

The exhibition Mark Tobey threading lights runs through the evolution of the pioneering style of the artist, as well as his significant, yet unobserved, contribution to American Abstractism and Modernism in the twentieth century.
