From 22 January to 28 March 2016 – Albertina
Many people know Hans Robert Pippal (1915–1998) above all for his charming views of Vienna. And indeed, it was with great passion that this perhaps “most Viennese” of 20th-century Austrian painters devoted himself to his hometown. Pippal painted representative streets and buildings like the Ringstrasse, the State Opera, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, and the Graben, as well as atmospheric scenes from Vienna’s outer districts. He was virtually unexcelled at capturing the city’s atmosphere as it changed over the course of the day and the seasons.
The artist’s entire oeuvre is characterised by the desire to catch up to international figurative modernism following the war, as well as by his struggle to arrive at an appropriate style for his respective motifs or themes.

While Pippal’s paintingsof cities are oriented toward late impressionism, his early illustrations take after those of Alfred Kubin. And the small number of his works that deal with Christian content follow the example of Georges Rouault, a central figure of modern religious painting. The stylistic diversity employed by Pippal is by no means random eclecticism, but rather bears witness to the artists’ constant quest to find an adequate form of artistic expression for the motif at hand.This makes his artistic output a highly individual contribution to the history of modern fine art in Austria.

American artist Romaine Brooks and the roaring twenties – Venice – Italy

Romaine Brooks, “Autoritratto”

Romaine Brooks, “Autoritratto”

Until March 13, 2016 – Venice, Palazzo Fortuny

Beatrice Romaine Goddard was one of the most representative figures of the artistic scene of the 1920s
Paintings, drawings, photographs _ With this exhibition, the first ever in Italy to be dedicated to the American artist Romaine Brooks, we discover the non-conformist, refined and cosmopolitan community that animated the most sophisticated cultural circles of the Belle Époque in Paris, Capri and Venice: Jean Cocteau, Paul Morand, Luisa Casati, Ida Rubinstein and Gabriele d’Annunzio are just some of the characters who were privileged to be immortalised by the artist, famous for her palette of moonlight tones.

Gabriele d'Annunzio

Romaine Brooks, “Gabriele d’Annunzio, il poeta in esilio”, 1912, Olio su tela, 116×95 cm, Paris, Centre Pompidou

Curated by Jérôme Merceron on the basis of a project by Daniela Ferretti, the exhibition arises from the felicitous meeting with Lucile Audouy, a passionate and feisty collector in Paris, who has generously loaned a very important group of works for the exhibition in Venice, many of which never before seen in public.

Born in Rome in 1874 to American parents and married to pianist John Ellington Brooks, Beatrice Romaine Goddard was one of the most interesting figures of the artistic scene of the Twenties. Romantically linked to the writer Nathalie Clifford Barney and, simultaneously, to the dancer Ida Rubinstein – her model for many paintings -– the American artist also had an intense relationship with d’Annunzio, whom she immortalised in two famous portraits. Initially influenced by the painting of Whistler, she soon found her unmistakable signature style, one marked by an infinite variety of greys and old pinks and an uncanny ability to capture the soul of her subjects.

However, it is the drawings that are the deepest mirror of her tragic and lonely soul. Charged with a suffering poetry, emotion and mystery, irony and pessimism, these elements blend in the taut line devoid of any decorative frills that almost cuts into the paper without hesitation or second thoughts; they accompany us with modesty and apparent detachment through the meanders of an inner world, constantly poised between light and darkness.

From 20 September 2014 to 25 January 2015 – La Mostra – Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi

The exhibition explores the major themes developed throughout the career of a painter who had the greatest impact on the history of the 20th century: art reflecting on art and on the relationship between the real and the super-real* and between nature and culture, the artist’s heartfelt involvement in the tragedy of unfolding history, the emergence of the monster with a human face, and the metaphor of erotic desire as a primary source of inspiration for the artist’s creativity and world vision.The exhibition also allows visitors to explore Picasso’s multi-faceted personality, the almost symbiotic bond that existed between his art and his life, between the work that he created and the time of his life in which he created it, while History with a capital “H” frequently made powerful inroads both into his pictures and into his life.

From 12 September 2014 to 11 January 2015 – Albertina

With his imaginative pictorial motifs, Joan Miró is one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. The Albertina is dedicating a solo exhibition to the Catalonian artist containing around 100 paintings, drawings and objects, which strives to emphasise the poetic quality of the famous Surrealist.

M
iró’s painting is characterised by a sense of lightness and spontaneity. He looks upon the world with a carefree, almost childish fascination for all things. His unmistakable pictorial language is as magical as it is universal. Moons, stars and comets, eyes and insects, birds and women populate his paintings and are among the most recognisable elements of his art. Miró’s works provide insight into his poetic perception and interpretation of the original, of that which is actually essential in things, the world and the universe.

Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice – London – UK

From 19 March to 15 June 2014 – The National Gallery

The National Gallery began with a unique asset when it worked on the project of a retrospective of Veronese, since it owns ten paintings by the Venetian master, among them The Family of Darius before Alexander or Adoration of the Magi). But they had to group together the remaining 40 works of art, and we know how museums hesitate to lend their works. While it was unconceivable to move Wedding at Cana from the Louvre, the frescoes of the palace of the Doges or from the church of the Frari, but what is brought together in London is nevertheless a first class choice …

Paolo Veronese (1528-1588), 'Perseus and Andromeda', 1575-80 - Oil on canvas. 260 x 211 cm - Rennes, Musée des Beaux-Arts

Paolo Veronese (1528-1588), ‘Perseus and Andromeda’, 1575-80 – Oil on canvas. 260 x 211 cm – Rennes, Musée des Beaux-Arts

We will admire works by Paolo Caliari (1528-1588) –his real name, the great rival of Tintoretto- such as the Mystical Marriage of Saint Catherine (Accademia, Venice), the Bella Nani from the Louvre and two portraits of men, from Palazzo Pitti and the Getty Center. The works of so famous an artist have been scat tered all over the globe and re-encounters can be surprising. One for example, is the one between two panels of an altarpiece from the little town of San Benedetto Po, separated since the 18th century that will once again live side by side, for a short period.
