The Macchiaioli on display in Trieste

Overview

The magnificent exhibition on the Macchiaioli opens November 19th 2022 in Trieste, in the splendid setting of Palazzo Revoltella.

Precursors of Impressionism, the Macchiaioli wanted to abandon the schematics of historical and mythological scenes of neoclassicism and romanticism, to experiment with a more immediate and realistic style of painting, created without preparatory drawings. This is how scenes of daily life became vibrant with the use of color left by quick brush strokes.

Everything is related: man is part of the universe and the universe to man, there are no borders, no clear limits in existence as in painting.

The term "Macchiaioli", used in a pejorative sense by contemporary critics, defines the most important group of Italian artists of the nineteenth century.

The exhibition produced by Arthemisia and curated by Tiziano Panconi, provides the opportunity to rediscover famous paintings and never before exhibited works: such as Bambino a Riomaggiore (1894-95) and Solferino (1859) by Telemaco Signorini. Mamma con Bambino (1866 -67) by Silvestro Lega. Italian Infantry and Sunset in Maremma (1900-05) by Giovanni Fattori and Child in the Sun (1869) by Giuseppe De Nittis and Signore al piano (1869) by Giovanni Boldini. Entrance tickets will allow you to visit the wonderful Revoltella Museum, a modern art gallery in Trieste that boasts a prestigious collection. The exhibition is promoted and organized by the Municipality of Trieste - Department of Culture and Tourism Policies, with the support of the Trieste Convention and Visitors Bureau and PromoTurismo FVG.
