THE PETERSEN CELEBRATES THE EXQUISITE ENGINEERING AND GORGEOUS ART OF THE BUGATTI FAMILY  New Art of Bugatti exhibition in the Mullin Grand Salon beginning October 23rd will include numerous works of art by the Bugatti, family along with some of its most historic cars including the Type 41 Royale, Type 57 Atlantic, Type 35 and modern Bugattis like the EB110 and the new Chiron.

Los Angeles, Calif. (August, 2016) – One year after its grand re-opening, the Petersen will unveil the most comprehensive retrospective on the Bugatti family in history, showcasing the art, sculpture, furniture and automobiles of the family that changed automotive design, engineering and racing during the art deco period. 'Art of Bugatti' will open to the public in the Mullin Grand Salon on October 23, 2016 and will remain on display for a year. The exhibit will be previewed during The Petersen's grand Gala hosted by two-time Emmy winner James Corden on October 22nd.

Art of Bugatti gives museum-goers an inside look at the history of one of the great arts dynasties of the last two centuries beginning with the patriarch, Carlo Bugatti, and his unique path through the arts which included a mastery of painting, furniture design and manufacture and silversmithing. It then goes into great detail on the work of his sons, Rembrandt and Ettore Bugatti as well as Ettore's children. Art of Bugatti offers a comprehensive history of the family with many examples of the works of art they created, both fine and automotive.

'The Bugattis were an incredibly fascinating family and their history, like all families, is filled with both triumph and tragedy,' said Peter Mullin, chairman of the board of directors for the Petersen. 'Their incredible aptitude for art and engineering is unparalleled by any family before or since and their legacy is worthy of celebration. It's a great honor to share these works with the public and I'm so pleased that we could bring this exhibition to the Petersen.'
