Paintings, photographs and sculptures and engravings adorn the walls of this magnificent location, celebrating some of the finest art works of the twentieth century.  

The pieces come together in a narrative, exploring the ties from opposite sides of the Atlantic through the eyes of Peggy and Solomon Guggenheim’s collections. It promises to display an eclectic and exciting range of masterpieces. Created at a time when the effects of the second World War were still lingering, the pieces themselves show a dialogue through their imagery and divulge into an unspoken conversation between Europe and America coming together in a truly powerful narrative.
