Alfonso Ossorio: Masterworks from the Collection of the Robert U. Ossorio Foundation
A dancer, patron of the arts, and founder of the Manhattan School of Ballet, Robert U. Ossorio (1923-1996) - the sixth of eight Ossorio brothers - assembled one of the most impressive private collections of Alfonso's art. Highlights from his collection include three monumental abstractions from the 1950s: Beachcomber(1953), The Improbable Cross (1955), and Act of Faith/Auto da Fé (1956). Also on view are five congregations, including Searcher (1963). Established as a lasting memory to Robert Ossorio after his death in 1996, the Robert U. Ossorio Foundation exists to ensure the artistic legacy of his brother Alfonso. Includes a foreword by Frederick E. Ossorio Jr, and introduction by Fogg Art Museum Curator of Modern Art, Harry Cooper.
