From February 26th to July 18th 2010 Florence will host in the prestigious Palazzo Strozzi‘s rooms an exhibition you can’t afford to miss…
“De Chirico, Max Ernst, Magritte, Balthus. A look into the invisible” this is the title of the important exhibition promoted and organized by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, with the collaboration of Soprintendenza PSAE and for Polo Museale della città di Firenze: Archivio dell’Arte Metafisica.
The exhibition’s track has the aim to present, through this important masterpieces, what has characterized the post-cubism in the European art gathering the most famous operas by De Chirico and by other artists.
The exhibition’s fulcrum is of course De Chirico’s works realized during the so-called methaphysical period (1909-1919) that are exposed with René Magritte, Balthus and other artists (Max Ernst, Carlo Carrà and Giorgio Morandi) works, that in different ways were inspired by De Chirico’s research. The goal is not only to show the stylistic relationships and formal affinities between the artists, but in particular to reveal original parallelisms between their themes, subjects and sensibility.
