Famous for his portraits characterized by an extraordinary modernity, as well as for his paintings, defined as "portraits in action", which immortalize characters in the exact moment in which they are making a gesture, the Lombard painter Giovan Battista Moroni enriches the autumn of Galleries of Italy in Milan. From 5 December to 1 April, the museum headquarters of Intesa Sanpaolo presents the exhibition Giovan Battista Moroni (1521 - 1580). Il Ritratto del Suo Tempo. Visitors will be able to browse the paintings and drawings of the artist who trained at Moretto's workshop in Brescia, in dialogue with works by contemporary masters such as Lotto, Savoldo, Tiziano, Veronese and Tintoretto. In love with grey, considered the truest color under which he sees reality, Moroni depicts his characters with expressions of hesitation and respect, the same they seem to have towards the painter.
Van Gogh’s works from the Kröller-Muller Museum establish a dialogue with the first fil rouge of the exhibition, an accurate selection of original editions of art books and magazines coming from the curator’s collection and the Biblioteca Malatestiana, showcased throughout the whole exhibition.
The exhibition investigates two themes dear to the photographer, botanical gardens and cities, rendered through various scales and dimensions: from large and very large format photographs to small format ones, up to the original contact sheets.
Matisse e Bonnard... dialogo tra capolavori 43 / 5.000 Risultati della traduzione Risultato di traduzione Matisse and Bonnard... dialogue between two masterpieces
Henri Matisse's masterpiece, Femme au violon, is exhibited in Room XXIII next to the Portrait of Marta Bonnard by Pierre Bonnard, in a special "chat" between two artists who had a special relationship between them as well as shared characteristics and pictorial themes .
Painter of spirit and vision, a proto-modern: this is how El Greco appeared to twentieth-century artists and collectors. The last great Mannerist, El Greco had an adventurous life straddling Crete, where he was born, Venice and Rome where he trained and sought his fortune, and finally Toledo where he achieved success. An exhibition tells it.
