Mario Sironi “Sintesi e grandiosità”
Curated by Elena Pontiggia and Anna Maria Montaldo, director of the Museo del Novecento, in collaboration with Andrea Sironi-Strausswald (Mario Sironi Association, Milan) and Romana Sironi (Mario Sironi Archive of Romana Sironi, Rome), this large and in-depth retrospective retraces the work of Mario Sironi sixty years after his death.
The 110 works on display reconstruct the entire artistic career of Sironi: from the youthful symbolist season to adherence to futurism; from his original interpretation of metaphysics in 1919 to the classical moment of the Italian twentieth century; from the expressionist crisis of 1929-30 to the monumental painting of the 1930s; until the Second World War and the Apocalypse painted shortly before his death. In fact, some masterpieces that have not appeared in an anthology of the artist for almost half a century are exhibited, like the fascinating Pandora, 1921-1922; Paese nella valle, 1928; Case e Alberi, 1929; L’abbeverata, 1929-30, and others exhibited for the very first time.
