The museum presents a selection of works from its holdings of postwar European painting and sculpture. Peggy lived in Palazzo Venier from 1949 to 1979, roughly the period covered by this exhibition, which is therefore a celebration of her Venetian life. It documents how she continued to collect even after her withdrawal from New York in 1947. On view are Italian masters (such as Rotella, Fontana, Bonalumi, Vedova, Tancredi, Mirko, Accardi, Lazzari) as well as British (Armitage, Bacon, Davie, Nicholson, Sutherland) and the artists from CoBrA, (Alechinsky, Appel and Jorn) and French nouveau réalisme (Arman). The exhibition closes with a tribute to the American artist Marion Richardson Taylor (d. 2010).
