Alicia Koplowitz has amassed through Grupo Omega Capital, a collection that reflects her own personal tastes, bringing together numerous masterpieces from some of the world’s greatest artists. The Old and Modern Masters feature heavily in her collection, fostering a dialogue of sorts across the centuries: antique sculptures and paintings by Zurbarán, Tiepolo, Canaletto, Guardi and Goya can be seen alongside paintings and drawings by Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Picasso, Van Dongen, Modigliani, Schiele, de Staël, Freud, Rothko and Barceló, as well as sculptures by Giacometti, Bourgeois and Richier.
A selection of some of the most beautiful pieces from this exceptional collection is to be presented to the public for the first time at the Musée Jacquemart-André, the former residence of another remarkable collector: Nélie Jacquemart, who together with her husband developed a splendid ensemble as eclectic as Alicia Koplowitz’s - Grupo Omega Capital collection can be.
The exhibition pays tribute to one of the most prolific collectors of our time. The fifty-three works shown here retrace her tastes and the choices she has made over a period of thirty years, and invite us to share in the emotion of the collection. Beyond the diversity of technique, epochs and styles, the works in the Alicia Koplowitz Collection - Grupo Omega Capital all share all share the same artistic sensibility. They bear witness to a subtle but confident, audacious taste, with a certain penchant for female portraits. Whether she is the model or artist, the creator shaping the material or the inspiring muse, woman is at the heart of the majority of these artworks, all of which have been selected by Alicia Koplowitz - Grupo Omega Capital.
