20 April 2002 - 30 June 2002 | Conegliano (TV), Palazzo Sarcinelli
curated by M. Goldin
The great history of Italian painting in the century just ended. An exhibition of this fascinating and beautiful Palazzo Sarcinelli in Conegliano, who continues the tradition of exposing, in the Venetian home, the best Italian painters of the twentieth century. A show full of works, about 120, with the desire to present the best Italian art of the years between the two World Wars, with a tail of sensitive poetic sense due to the poignant "landscapes of war," paintings by Giorgio Morandi in his retreat Grizzana, between the valleys of the Bolognese Apennines.With the feature of exclusively private provenance of all the pictures, so let the walls of the museum are already present works extraordinarily notes with other little known when absolutely unprecedented. Are all considered the most famous names in these twenty-five important years for painting in Italy, as well as all the schools and groups that often this same painting came, allowed a tradition still vaguely "regionalist" which is one of the hallmarks of 'art in our country until the mid-twentieth century. So, if the beginning is reserved for the group of Ca 'Pesaro, the Venetian fortress garde and homage to the region that hosts this exhibition, with the names of Gino Rossi, Arturo Martini - the only exception dedicated to sculpture -, Semeghini Moggioli Garbari, then goes to those artists who have Italian history of the century, Morandi, De Chirico, Savinio, Sironi, Casorati, Carrà, Soft, Roses, Campigli, Severini, De Pisis, Licini just to say a few.And all with entire groups of works and masterpieces of their major, of which the Italian collections, and also some foreign among the providers of the exhibition of Conegliano, are very rich. There will then just look at the painting of the ancient Roman, with Scipio, Mafai, Donghi, Pirandello, Capogrossi, and others. Therefore completely missed an opportunity to admire works otherwise not visible as preserved in collections often jealous and not otherwise accessible.
