Ileana Sonnabend, one of the most influential figures in the 20th-century artistic canon, undoubtedly steered the trajectory of Post-War art in the United States and Europe. The visionary gallerist, patron, and collector facilitated a vibrant cross-continental dialogue via her influential New York and Paris galleries. She championed Pop Art, Conceptualism, Minimalism, Neo-Geo, Arte Povera, Process Art, performance art, video art, and more. Her discerning and bold selections, frequently at odds with commercial viability, consistently determined the art world’s next big thing.
