The Phillips Collection presents Ugo Rondinone / Louis Eilshemius, a One-on-One exhibition that focuses on the intersections of poetry and nature in visual art. For the sixth edition of One-on-One, acclaimed contemporary Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone (b. 1964, Brunnen, Switzerland) presents his large-scale forest landscape paintings, a selection of poems on paper, and diary paintings in dialogue with over 50 paintings by American painter and poet Louis Michel Eilshemius (1864–1941). Rondinone is a longtime collector and admirer of Eilshemius’s work, and, unique to this iteration of One-on-One, the exhibition includes paintings by Eilshemius drawn from Rondinone’s extensive private collection as well as the Phillips’s permanent collection.

One-on-One: Ugo Rondinone / Louis Eilshemius will be on view at the Phillips from November 7, 2023–January 14, 2024.

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st Street NW.
