Thursday, April 26, 2012 - Saturday, June 30, 2012
Beginning April 26, 2012, Luxembourg & Dayan will present Domenico Gnoli: Paintings 1964-1969, the first U.S. exhibition in more than four decades devoted to the artist. The exhibition brings together 18 of his late paintings and includes a small group of drawings from “What is a Monster?”, a series in which Gnoli investigated the possibilities of a modern day bestiary. The works on view have been loaned from important private collections and museums, including the Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober in Majorca; the Stiftung Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf; the Fondazione MAXXI and the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rome; and the Fondazione Orsi in Milan.
His realistic, immobile work was focused on representing everyday objects such as chairs, sofas and beds and was very well received by critics and a public in touch with the cult of consumer society objects and Pop sensibility. However, his work is tinged with echoes of European art movements of the first half of the century, such as Surrealism, magical realism and metaphysical painting.
