A dedicated collector and advocate of contemporary art since the late 1940s, Giuseppe Panza has played a fundamental role in the artistic culture of his time, introducing American phenomena such as Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, Pop Art, Environmental Art, and Conceptualism to the museums of Europe. Now, in a brilliant response to everyoneGCOs primary question about Modern ArtGCoGCGBPWhat does it mean?GC[yen]GCoPanza shares philosophical insights and personal reflections that bridge a half-century of discovering new artists and movements. Panza was among the first to buy the works of Rothko, Kline, Lichtenstein, and many of the other major figures of post-WWII art, watching as their works skyrocketed in monetary value as well as historic importance. He pursued collecting with undiminished enthusiasm through the 1980s and 1990s, all the while searching for the best venues in which to display his latest acquisitions. Sections of his private collection were exhibited by and acquired into major collections, particularly the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the Guggenheim in New York.
Among his signature innovations was the juxtaposition of contemporary art with historic settingsGCoBaroque palaces, ancient European public buildings, his own eighteenth-century villaGCoin order to create unexpected and stimulating dialogs between the architectural context and the work of art. Complete with 110 full-color illustrations, spanning decades of transformation in art and world culture, Giuseppe Panza: Memories of a Collector provides a unique glimpse into the movements and trends that have defined modern art. It is also the fascinating life story of a man who helped define the trends themselves, through passion, insight, and prophetic taste. Cover image (c)Giorgio Colombo, Milano
