The exhibition Gino Severini 1883-1966 opens the Mart Museum of Rovereto
On September 17 inaugurates at Mart, Museum of Modern Art of Trento and Rovereto, the exhibition Gino Severini 1883-1966, curated by Gabriella Belli and Marie-Paul Vial. The exhibition is a co-production of the Museums d'Orsay and of the Orangery, Paris.
The exhibition runs through the artistic evolution of Gino Severini, from futurism to the return to classic. On show around eighty artworks from the most important private and public collections both Italians and internationals.
Gino Severini grows up at the studio of the painter Giacomo Balla and finishes his education between Italy and France, where he moves in 1906. He becomes one of the main representative of the Futurism movement and he puts together in an original way the divisionism research and the French puntinism.
From the second half of the ten he is one of the protagonists of the "back to order" movement. With the work Maternità (Matherhood) in 1916, in fact, he anticipates the new classical artistic movement that will run across Europe. During the thirties he becomes close with the group Les Italiens de Paris.
This exposition is a great opportunity to visit, in Italy, an high selection of work of this great master.
The exhibition runs from 17 September 2011 to 8 January 2012.
UniCredit and Mart are partners. Together we support cultural activities designed to explore the world of contemporary art and promote young talent.
