Beckmann: Exile Figures
MADRID  •  Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza  •  25 October 2018 - 27 January 2019
 

The Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza is presenting Beckmann: Exile figures, the first exhibition in Spain in twenty years to be devoted to the artist, one of the most important of the 20th century. While close to New Objectivity at the outset of his career, Max Beckmann (Leipzig, 1884 – New York, 1950) created a unique and independent type of painting, realist in style but filled with symbolic resonances, which came to constitute a vigorous account of society of his day.

Curated by Tomàs Llorens the exhibition features a total of 52 works, principally paintings but also sculptures and lithographs, loaned from museums and collections worldwide and including some of the artist’s most important creations, such as The Boat (1926), Society, Paris (1931), Self-portrait with Horn (1938), City. Night in the City (1950), and The Argonauts (1949-50), the triptych that Beckmann finished on the day he died at a relatively early age in New York.

Van Gogh to Picasso: The Thannhauser Legacy
BILBAO  •  Guggenheim Bilbao Museo  •  21 September 2018 - 24 March 2019
 

 The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents Van Gogh to Picasso: The Thannhauser Legacy , featuring the celebrated Thannhauser Collection gifted to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, and marking the first time the majority of the collection as such leaves New York to be exhibited elsewhere. The show includes some fifty works by a number of the most well recognized Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and modern masters, such as Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh. The Thannhauser Collection is a bequest of nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century art given to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation by Justin K. and Hilde Thannhauser. Justin K. Thannhauser was the son of the German Jewish art dealer Heinrich Thannhauser, who founded the Moderne Galerie in Munich in 1909.

After retiring from a distinguished career as a dealer of modern art in Europe and the United States, in 1963 Justin K. Thannhauser (1892–1976) announced a bequest of essential works from his private art collection—spanning some one hundred years—to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York. Hilde Thannhauser (1919–1991), Justin’s widow, subsequently made additional gifts to the institution in 1984 and 1991.
