"Renoir. Tradition and innovation"

The city of Limoges gave birth to one of the greatest Impressionist artists, Pierre-Auguste Renoir. The artist was a huge fan of music and profoundly smitten with female sensuality – female nudes were among his favourite subjects. His first significant experiences in the field of painting were had together with other talented artists Monet and Sisley, with whom he painted outdoors under the sky of Fointainebleau. Approximately 150 creations on loan from Italian and international museums go on show and explore Renoir’s human and artistic journey. These works are suffused with sun, light and colour; they are snapshots of intimate and tender moments, immersed in an atmospheric intensity.

Running Exhibition till February 3rd 2008

The Galleria Borghese will serve as the venue in which to admire over 50 paintings, drawings and clay models. 16 major marble sculptures are also on display and include some spectacular pieces, such as the "Three Graces", the "Sleeping Nymph", "Amor and Psyche", the “Naiad” and the complete series of “Amorini”.

"Bonnard-Matisse e il Mediterraneo"

These two geniuses of 20th century painting though profoundly different in painting styles were united by an important and complex correspondence and were constantly listening to, and debating with, one another. Pierre Bonnard and Henri Matisse's works await us at the Vittoriano complex where over 200 drawings, watercolours, documents, letters, postcards, oils, sculptures and gouaches have been assembled. These two great artists and art lovers were inspired by the same themes - nature, landscapes and people - but they explored them in entirely different ways.

The exhibition Munch 1863-1944 has been opened at Complesso del Vittoriano .It has been curated by Řivind Storm Bjerke and Achille Bonito Oliva; More than 100 are present; we find paintings and graphic works coming from the most prestigious international museums like Munchmuseet, which preserves the artist works donated by him to the town of Oslo just before his death. The exhibition has been set up following a chronological path that analyzes the development stages of Edvard Munch work: his first naturalist paintings, the consonance with symbolism and in the end the paintings that come just before the great expressionist season of which the painter is considered the father and the forerunner. Munch artistic career has been complicated and tormented as also demonstrated by the reputation he got from official contemporary critic; his 1892 exhibition at Künstlerverein in Berlin, stirred up a big scandal in the academic milieau and was even censored and shut down. Important for his cultural education was his friendship with August Strindberg, Friedrich Nietzsche philosophy and his trip to France such as the one taken in 1896, in Paris where Munch got in touch with the artists and writers group that used to meet on the " Mallarmé Tuesday" . Some of the works present at the exhibition are: Bambina malata, Pubertŕ, Madonna, Malinconia, Ragazze sul ponte, Il bacio, Morte nella camera della malata, Gelosia, Separazione, all showing the existential anguish he experienced during his life and present in all his works, an evident proof of a life tormented by diseases, and pain and by his family s death, in fact her sister Sophie died in 1877, his father in 1889 and his brother Andreas in 1895. Munch will experience physical pain because he was struck by different illnesses as for example the eye disease which prevented him from painting for a long time or the frequent hallucinations and the problems due to alcohol abuse which will take him to the sanatorium. He died in 1944 in his holding Ekely in Sköyen, near Oslo.

Running Exhibition from December 7th 2004 to February 27th 2005

A personal exhibition devoted to Edgar Degas (1834-1917) has been opened at Complesso del Vittoriano of Rome. Degas has always been considered an impressionist but to tell the truth he is very original with regard to the Batignolles group. No art has ever been as spontaneous as mine, used to say Degas to add: "What I do is the result of meditation and study of the Great Masters". Degas, on one hand used to study and copy the classics almost obsessively and on the other hand he updated his pointing by putting it in a contemporary dimension where modern life is depicted in its variety, in its most hidden and less pleasant aspects, as in the Assenzio for example. The acquaintance with Manet in 1862 at the Louvre has for sure been decisive for the painter, who unlive the impressionists liked to paint urban life (cafés, the ballet-dancers, the theatre, the horses-race) representing it in paintings made in his studio and not on plain air or sur le motif as Monet or the other impressionists used to do. Nonetheless Degas can be considered a true impressionist, thanks to his ability in depicting the events temporariness the binomial drawing-colour and in interpreting reality in its entireness and space-time continuity. More than 170 works are on display: besides his most famous oils and pastels we can see drawings and photographs and the entire collection of sculptures belonging to Museu de Arte di S. Paolo in Brasile.

Opening hours: Daily from Monday to Wednesday 9.30 a.m.-7.30 p.m.; Friday and e Saturday 9.30a.m.-11.30 p.m. ; Sunday 9.30 a.m.-8.30 p.m.
