There are artists, but above all masterpieces, that have made their mark on an historical period and have, somehow, characterized a century. “The sign of 1900s. From Cézanne to Picasso, from Kandinskij to Fontana” lays down the scene of European art from the end of 19th century to the post-World War II period emphasizing the art print. Not just simple “sheets”, as the purists would define these works, but actual masterpieces that focus on the sign, the colors and the engraving.
“The sign of 1900s. From Cézanne to Picasso, from Kandinskij to Fontana”: the exhibition
The engraving, even today, is considered a minor art compared to painting and sculpture, again according to the purists. With the exhibition “The sign of 1900s. From Cézanne to Picasso, from Kandinskij to Fontana” the organizers try to tell the vision of some of the most influential artists of this period. For them, in fact, the art print has been not only a fundamental means of expression but also a method to experiment innovative techniques and styles, that later on would have influenced contemporary art and set up a different artistic path.
A trip among visions, emotions and sensibilities. In the first room of the exhibition, dedicated to 19th century, visitors will be amazed by the masterpieces of Toulouse-Lautrec and Cézanne, then they will admire the century of avant-garde movements and its most important artists: Picasso, Matisse, Kandiskij, Mirò and many others. The last room, then, is dedicated to Lucio Fontana, an enigmatic genius. An important closure for an exhibition that will leave a mark in all visitors but give rise to a reflection on the current state of art and its future.
The exhibition is hosted in the MUST Museum in Vimercate until March 11, 2018. Opening times: Wednesday and Thursday 10.00-13.00, Firday, Saturday and Sunday 10.00-13.00 / 15.00 – 19.00.
