A beautiful Summer
Some names: Arnaldo Pomodoro, Atchugarry, Ceroli, Schifano, Fontana
THE ROOMS OF THE GALLERY
WILL BE OPEN EVERY DAY
UNTIL SEPTEMBER 15
Tornabuoni Arte Gallery has a series of surprises in store for those who will visit its rooms, this summer. Until September 15, the gallery will open every day, opening hours 10:30am-1:00pm and 5:00pm-11:30pm, allowing visitors to see a number of quality works by some of the greatest artists of the past century and of the present that will certainly attract the attention of the many visitors of Versilia. The exhibition does neither revolve around a specific theme, nor draw any parallel between the creative talents of these artists; instead, it simply focuses on excellence.
ON DISPLAY THERE WILL BE
EXCELLENT WORKS BY GREAT
20TH-CENTURY AND PRESENT ARTISTS
For instance, a bronze Pyramid by Arnaldo Pomodoro (1987) – which is deeply corroded in its soul – converses with the sinuous movements of a couple of snow-white marbles by Pablo Atchugarry, and with an articulated spherical structure by Mario Ceroli. Among paintings, works by Afro, Albers, Boetti, Burri, Calzolari, Carrà, Galliani, Soffici, Turcato, Zorio and many others stand out. In particular, there are three great canvases that certainly support the gallery’s choice. The first is Unnamed, a 1982 large enamel and acrylic on paper with canvas backing by Mario Schifano (characterized by happy, silvan gestures); the second is Spatial Concept, a 1959 work by Lucio Fontana in which the surface of the paper with backing canvas is wittily attacked by holes, scratches, ink and aniline; and the third is The Disquieting Muses, a small 1960-62 oil on canvas by Giorgio de Chirico that has shown its timeless metaphysics in a recent exhibition at Palazzo Ducale in Genoa.
THE EXHIBITION ASPIRES TO SPARK OFF
THE INTEREST OF THOSE WHO LOVE TO FEED
ON ART DURING THEIR SUMMER HOLIDAYS
This should be enough to spark off the attention and interest of all those who, in the seaside season, love to feed on the beneficial sun of great art.
