From September 16, 2023 to January 7, 2024, a cross-disciplinary exhibition at Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati to get up close and personal with the poetics, method and artistic context of the most realistic of the Impressionists.
An itinerary that allows for in-depth penetration of the poetics and practice of one of the most original personalities of his time, a painter who, while calling himself a realist, proudly declared that he knew nothing about ethereal aspects such as spontaneity and inspiration. In addition to a series of drawings, woodcuts, lithographs and pochoirs, etchings, books, heliogravures and bronze sculptures of sinuous dancers that allow us to reconstruct the painter’s creative intimacy, the exhibition presents a body of works that aims to broaden the gaze to offer a kind of artistic context, necessary to fully understand the uniqueness of a being and an act. Here then, to ideally form a circle of personal and professional relationships, the exhibition juxtaposes the works of the main protagonist of this journey through time with those of contemporaries such as Morisot, De Nittis, Cassat, Moreau, Renoir, Raphael, Manet, Lepic, Guillaumin, Forain, Desboutin and Boldini.
Curated by Vincenzo Sanfo, the itinerary cannot but conclude with an exceptional photographic documentation of Degas’ daily life: the only way to crystallize the vital essence of an otherwise elusive artist.
