Prints from the Marron Collection
521 West 26th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10001 USA
Pace Prints is pleased to present Prints from the Marron Collection at our 521 West 26th Street, 3rd Floor gallery, on view February 26 – April 3, 2021.*
Concurrently with the exhibition, a selections of the works will be presented in our Online Viewing Room.
Donald Marron (1934–2019) was one of the 20th and 21st centuries’ most passionate and erudite collectors, a pioneer of corporate collections, a family man, and a dedicated philanthropist. Over the course of six decades, Marron acquired over 300 modern and contemporary masterworks.
In 2020, Acquavella Galleries, Gagosian, and Pace Gallery joined with the Marron family to handle the sale of the Donald B. Marron Family Collection in a series of exhibitions at the three galleries. Pace Prints is honored to be presenting Marron’s remarkable prints, which highlight not only the importance of printmaking in the practices of the artists whom he collected, but also the role that prints play in building and expanding a comprehensive art collection. In 2021, Phaidon Press will publish a scholarly volume to illuminate Marron’s collection and celebrate his legacy.
The focus of the exhibition are the works of three iconic artists — Lucian Freud, Jasper Johns, and Ed Ruscha — who used printmaking throughout their careers to explore and further their distinct, innovative visions. Complementing these titans of their generation are works by gifted and inventive printmakers Julian Opie, Elizabeth Peyton, and Stanley Whitney. All created since 2000, the works on view illuminate the vitality of printmaking in contemporary art.
