Artists and Lovers originally opened in Savile Row, London, in mid September 2016, presenting a striking selection of sculpture, painting, photography, dance, music and film. The exhibition, on display in New York from 4 November 2016- 7 January 2017, aims to bring fresh perspective to intriguing and significant artistic alliances, from well-known couples such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, to more private artistic pairings, including the long friendship between Joseph Cornell and Yayoi Kusama. Highlights  include a major Frida Kahlo self-portrait, painted in 1940, being shown in New York for the first time in over 30 years, and (Silver Square), painted by Jackson Pollock circa 1950, a work that was hung for many years in the New York apartment of Pollock’s wife and fellow Abstract Expressionist, Lee Krasner. Works by Kay Sage and Yves Tanguy; Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington and Dorothea Tanning; Elaine and Willem de Kooning; Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly and Jasper Johns; Merce Cunningham and John Cage and Donald Judd and Lauretta Vinciarelli will also be shown in this free, public exhibition.
