Catalogue of the anthological exhibition on Galileo Chini: painter, ceramist, graphic artist, architect and set designer of the Liberty period.
The National Gallery of Modern Art presents a major anthological exhibition on the work of the artist Galileo Chini (Florence, 1873-1956), who was a painter, ceramist, graphic artist, architect and set designer. When he was very young he founded a small ceramics factory whose models were very popular on both European and US markets. During the same period Chini participated at the Universal Expositions of London and Turin, and at the Venice Biennials. He also worked with great commitment on set design, profoundly renewing the discipline through the new Liberty style.
