Guttuso. Fifties

14 January – 20 March 2005 | Brescia, Museo di Santa Giulia

curated by M. Goldin

The exhibition illustrates the ten richest Sicilian painter Renato Guttuso (1912-1987): those who see the forties, in Rome, sharing the living cultural debate gathered around the journal "Current." High witness, including his most famous, the Crucifixion, presented to the great scandal at the "Premio Bergamo" of 1942; work interesting for the noticeable influence of the painting of Picasso, of which it is a friend in 1945, on the occasion of his first stay in France. An artistic journey marked by social issues and political subjects, as evidenced in all his splendid dramatic series of massacres.
