ALBERTO SAVINIO, CIMA ANNUAL INSTALLATION

0ctober 6, 2017 - June 23, 2018

421 Broome Street, 4th floor, New York

 

The Center for Italian Modern Art presents the first major public exhibition in the United States of the work of Alberto Savinio (1891–1952).

Hailed by poet and critic Guillaume Apollinaire as the paragon of a Renaissance man, Savinio, the younger brother of Giorgio de Chirico, was a gifted pianist, composer, musicologist, critic, and writer, in addition to visual artist. CIMA’s exhibition will highlight in particular the paintings he produced after his 1926 move to Paris, where he was soon immersed in the city’s avant-garde. There, the success of his first solo show brought him a commission for the private apartments of famed art dealer Léonce Rosenberg, where his work hung alongside that of Max Ernst, Fernand Léger, and Francis Picabia, among others. Yet despite his achievements, he is today virtually unknown outside of Italy.

The exhibition, which will comprise about 25 paintings, will explore Savinio’s work through two major themes: imaginary spaces and the family as a site of perilous ambiguity.

VERONESE IN MURANO:
TWO VENETIAN RENAISSANCE MASTERPIECES RESTORED

Paintings to Leave Italy for the First Time

October 24, 2017 through March 25, 2018


The Frick Collection, 1 East 70th Street, New York

 

This fall, The Frick Collection will present a focused exhibition on two important Renaissance paintings by the celebrated artist Paolo Veronese (1528– 1588), St. Jerome in the Wilderness and St. Agatha Visited in Prison by St. Peter. While the paintings are known to scholars, their remote location in a church in Murano, an island in the lagoon of Venice known today for its glassmaking studios and shops, has made them difficult to study. St. Jerome in the Wilderness has been exhibited outside the church only once—in 1939, in the Paolo Veronese exhibition at Ca’ Giustinian, in Venice— while St. Agatha Visited in Prison by St. Peter has not left the church since being installed in the early nineteenth century. These two rarely seen canvases now leave Italy for the first time since their creation, over 450 years ago. And thanks to Venetian Heritage and the sponsorship of BVLGARI, they have been fully restored and returned to their original glory. Veronese in Murano: Two Venetian Renaissance Masterpieces Restored, on view October 24, 2017, through March 11, 2018, will provide a unique opportunity for an international audience to discover these two masterpieces in the Frick’s unique setting. The exhibition is organized by the Frick’s Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator Xavier F. Salomon, an eminent Veronese scholar (who wrote the accompanying catalogue), and Venetian Heritage.

A major international loan exhibition featuring artistic masterpieces from the glorious church of the Gesù in Rome—one of the city’s most celebrated architectural monuments—never before seen in America.

The Fairfield University Art Museum is presenting a major international loan exhibition, The Holy Name—Art of the Gesù: Bernini and his Age, which will be on view in the museum’s Bellarmine Hall Galleries from February 1 through May 19, 2018. Its focus is the Church of the Gesù (Chiesa del Santissimo Nome di Gesù all'Argentina) in Rome.

Situated in the heart of the city in the shadow of the ancient Forum, the Gesù, designed by the Renaissance architects Jacopo Vignola and Giacomo della Porta, is one of the most glorious architectural monuments of Rome

This landmark exhibition, organized to commemorate Fairfield University’s 75th anniversary, features artistic treasures from the Gesù itself, never before seen in America: Bernini’s bust of Roberto Bellarmino (patron saint of Fairfield University), Gaulli’s monumental painted wood model of the apse, a gilt bronze altar sculpture by the versatile painter, draftsman and sculptor Ciro Ferri, the sumptuous jeweled cartagloria from the altar of St. Ignatius, and the magnificent embroidered chasuble of the church’s great benefactor, Cardinal Alessandro Farnese. These masterpieces will be joined by more than forty paintings, sculptures, rare books, precious objects, drawings, prints, and historical documents by Bernini, Domenichino, Gaulli, Ciro Ferri, Carlo Maratti, and Andrea Pozzo, among other Italian Baroque masters, generously lent by museums and private collections around the country including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Morgan Library & Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Princeton University Art Museum and the Yale University Art Gallery.
