The event has been celebrated with the most comprehensive exhibition of his works ever, Alberto Burri: The Trauma of Painting, at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, in addition to the public opening of his masterpiece of land art Grande Cretto in Sicily after 30 years, and the publication of the new artist’s catalogue by the Fondazione Palazzo Albizzini Collezione Burri. In honour of the Italian artist’s pioneering career, Sotheby’s will include four stunning works by Burri in its forthcoming sale of Modern & Contemporary Art.
