Giuseppe De Nittis, a great artist in Paris

Giuseppe De Nittis, a great artist in Paris
#Exhibitions

Brilliant and curious. Together with Boldini, he was considered the greatest of the Italians in Paris where he had managed to hold his own against Manet, Degas and the Impressionists. He wanted to revolutionize painting, overcoming the hierarchy of genres, to achieve the autonomy of art which was the greatest aspiration of modernity. Giuseppe De Nittis was fascinated by Japanese painting which was very fashionable at his time. The landscape, the portrait and the representation of modern life captured en plein air were the themes that were close to the heart of the artist, a great frequenter of the European capitals of art in his time: Paris, above all, and London. The exhibition retraces twenty years of De Nittis' career, from 1864 to 1884, reconstructing an absolutely extraordinary pictorial adventure, which ended prematurely with his death at just 38 years of age.
