Jackson Pollock and the Irascibles: 49 paintings from the New York school from the late 1930s to the mid-1960s on show in Milan’s royal palace.

Other famous works include Mahoning by Franz Kline (1956), Door to the River by Willem de Kooning (1960) and Untitled (Blue, Yellow, Green on Red) (1954) by Mark Rothko, as well as paintings by William Baziotes and Bradley Walker Tomlin.
