A perceptive reinterpretation of Metaphysics and its impact on contemporary art. An extraordinary nucleus of paintings by Giorgio De Chirico from the Museum of Modern Art of New York. Alongside classic Metaphysical masterpieces created by great artists like Miró, Picasso, Magritte, Dalí, Brancusi and Giacometti, all deeply influenced by the new language of De Chirico and Carrà.
Over twenty years after the exhibition held at Palazzo Grassi in Venice, “Metafisica”, curated by Ester Coen, stands out as a very important event on a cultural phenomenon that had a very profound impact on European and American art. From the paintings of De Chirico to evocative, striking works by great artists like Carrà, Miró, Picasso, Ernst, Magritte, Dalí, Gorky, Tanguy, Morandi, De Pisis and Sironi, all fascinated by the atmospheres of De Chirico, leading to images that propagated those effects for future generations. The exhibition also includes fascinating sculptures by Brancusi and Giacometti. A unique opportunity to see paintings of extraordinary emotional tension, rarely exhibited in Italy, from prestigious international institutions and museums.
