- Story Text: The Guggenheim Museum in New York City opened its doors
Friday (October 16) for the "Rendezvous" collection, described
by some as a divine, dream-team, all-star show of 350 works by
150 artists.Some of the works have never left their Paris
home, while others have not been seen together since leaving
the artists' studio.
Masterpieces by Pablo Picasso, Henri Mataisse are among
those being displayed at the Solomon Guggenheim Museum as part
of the "Rendezvous" collection.
The exhibition represents a partnership between the George
Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Guggenehim Museums and
features more than 300 paintings, sculptures, and drawings by
more than 150 artists and forms an exceptional exhibit
chronicling the history of Modern art from the turn of the
century to 1970.
Two of the paintings, Henri Matisse's "The Italian Woman"
owned by the Guggenheim and "Portrait of Greta", owned by the
Pompidou, have never been exhibited together - the last time
they were in the same room was at Matisse's studio.
Matisse's "The Sorrow of the King" painted in 1952 has
never before left Paris.
Lisa Dennison, the museum's Chief Curator said this would
probably be the last time that such a group of paintings would
be seen together.The show was made possible because the
Pompidou is closed until the end of 1999 for renovation.The
museum loaned the paintings to the Guggenheim while
construction was under way for this landmark exhibition.
The unprecedented group of paintings will be on show in New
York until the beginning of 1999.
