Memories of Serenissima: Nineteenth-Century Artists in Venice - Opening
Curated by Marco Bertoli, this exhibition is the last of a three-year project dedicated to 19th Century Italian painting. It showcases a selected group of artworks, dating from the second half of the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s, revealing how the memories of and the ties with Venice’s Republic were still alive in the decades that followed its fall.
From the paintings that depict the Venetian Lagoon, whose sky and water look like they are almost touching each other, to the views of the Venetian countryside, to those of the City with the Canals and the Bell towers animated by daily life, these works characterize themselves with their extraordinary luminosity and for the study of the fleeting and sudden effect of light.
On view paintings by some of the most important artists representing the Venetian painting of 19th Century, such as Giovanni Boldini, Vittorio Emanuele Bressanin, Beppe Ciardi, Emma Ciardi, Guglielmo Ciardi, Angelo Dall’Oca Bianca, Eugenio De Blaas, Giacomo Favretto, Pietro Fragiacomo, Francesco Hayez, Egisto Lancerotto, Alessandro Milesi, Luigi Nono, Antonio Rotta, Rubens Santoro, Lino Selvatico, Ettore Tito, Federico Zandomenighi.
Memories of Serenissima: Nineteenth-Century Artists in Venice, is part of the Carnegie Hall Festival La Serenissima: Music and Arts from the Venetian Republic.
