18.09.2014 - 18.01.2015
Giovanni Segantini, one of the greatest late nineteenth century European painters, is on show in Milan from 18th September to 18th January 2015.
The retrospective brings together for the first time in Milan more than 120 works from major museums and European and American collections, thus celebrating the relationship that the author had with the Italian city, a symbol of the great cultural and political ferment of the nineteenth century.
The exhibition traces the artistic journey and the life of the painter who lived in post-unification Milan from his childhood until his move to the mountains of the Engadine, whose unspoiled views were a source of inspiration for his works.
From the picturesque perspectives of the Navigli to life in the fields, the exhibition kicks off with a section devoted to his beginnings in Milan at the Brera Academy to then move on to the paintings concerning rural life - "After the storm", "The last effort of the day "and" Rest in the shade "- and to its symbolic transfiguration which is well represented in works subsequent to 1886 (such as "Spring in the Alps" and "Ave Maria a transhipment "), without omitting portraits and still lives ("Portrait of Mrs. Torelli”, "Portrait of Charles Rotta","Rose Petal").
The theme of motherhood with its masterpiece "The two mothers", which was considered the manifesto of Italian divisionism at the first Triennale di Brera and the official birth of the movement, could not be omitted.
