“This catalogue presents a selection of works in the Winston/Malbin Collection. Detroit-born Lydia Winston Malbin (1897–1989) was an avid collector of European art, who, with the Guggenheim’s first director Hilla Rebay, organized Detroit’s first show of abstract art in 1940. Although the focus of the collection was on Futurism (and the catalogue includes an extensive section on drawings and prints by Italian artist Umberto Boccioni), it was by no means limited to that movement. The catalogue brings together a selection that ranges from Cubist and Surrealist works to postwar Abstract Expressionism and Color Field painting.
The catalogue’s two essays trace the influence of Futurism on other art movements, and each reproduction is accompanied by an artist biography, provenance, and exhibition history.”
