PLACEHOLDER The Guggenheim Museum and Hilla Rebay, Frank Lloyd Wright
The main force behind the founding of the Guggenheim Museum was a German artist, Hilla Rebay, who was dedicated to spiritual abstract art and convinced Solomon Guggenheim to become a pioneer collector of cutting edge work by Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Piet Mondrian, Robert Delaunay, Kasimir Malevich, …and herself!. The museum building Frank Lloyd Wright designed, was intended specifically for these works, as a ‘temple of spirits’. We will have a closer look at the story behind the founding of the museum, the design of the landmark building, as well as some of the outstanding works in the collection.
