Venice: Ca Pesaro - The Sonnabend Collection

Venice: Ca Pesaro - The Sonnabend Collection.  In the International Gallery of Modern Art, Ca Pesaro The Sonnabend Collection, curated by Gabriella Belli is on show until September 29. Ileana Sonnabend was one of the greatest and most influential discoverers of artistic talent of the late 20th century, known and appreciated for her intuition, strength of character, ground-breaking vision and for that eclecticism of taste and thinking that enabled her to understand and promote all that was new in American and European art.
