Autumn at the Palazzo Reale with Carlo Carrà

Autumn at the Palazzo Reale with Carlo Carrà

The passionate life of Carlo Carrà in documents, photos, letters and films, depicting the universe of the artist from his experience with divisionism to the futurists, finally arriving at his artistic breakthrough in 1922. Thirty years from the last exhibition in Milan and 56 after the one that, Carrà, still alive, held in 1962 under the Presidency of Roberto Longhi, Palazzo Reale celebrates the poet of the marinas whipped by the south-west winds, landscapes and still-lifes with an important anthological exhibition, the largest ever created. The appointment with 130 works on loan from the most important Italian and international collections, public and private, from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow to the Kunsthaus in Zurich, from the Vatican Museums to the MART in Rovereto, is from 4 October to 3 February. Exploring the anarchist spirit of the rebel artist who journeyed from London to Paris, looking at his meetings with Apollinaire and Picasso, his work as a critic for important reviews, the visitor is invited to retrace the story of intellectual affinity and relationships that tied Carlo Carrà to collectors and friends at the time.
