"Ottocento - L'arte dell'Italia tra Hayez e Segantini" - Mostra ai Musei San Domenico, Forlì
Until June 16th, 2019
The 2019 exhibition at the Musei San Domenico in Forlì presents the great art of nineteenth century Italy, in the period between the closing phase of Romanticism and the artistic experiments of the new century, between the Unification of Italy and the Great War.
By retracing the events of Italian art in the half-century that preceded the revolution of Futurism, through an extraordinary comparison of painting and sculpture, we can understand critically how art functioned as a formidable tool of celebration and communication to create consensus, while also being the most popular and “democratic” means of informing Italians on the exciting and contradictory course of their ancient and recent history, characterized by shared passions as well as strong tensions and divisions. Between Hayez and Segantini the exhibition presents the important production of artists such as Induno, Molmenti, Maccari, Muzzioli, Costa, Fattori, Signorini, Corcos, Michetti, Lojacono, Michetti, Previati, Morbelli, Nomellini, Tito, Sartorio, De Nittis, Pellizza da Volpedo, Boccioni and Balla; of sculptors such as Vela, Cecioni, Monteverde, Gemito, Canonica and Bistolfi. Yet it provides also an extraordinary opportunity to present many other unjustly forgotten and surprising artists.
