After fascinating Paris at the end of the nineteenth century when 11 works were presented at the Universal Exhibition of 1878 - Palazzo Zabarella, Padova De Nittis paintings are preparing to finally conquer the Italian public.
Coveted by the biggest international collectors and critically acclaimed, De Nittis paintings were able to capture the new elements of French impressionism and interpret them with the artists taste and sensitive personality and reach with them with the autonomy of art at the base of modernity. A successful Italian in Paris at the end of the nineteenth century.
This success was achieved with determination and loneliness: Giuseppe De Nittis had the classic life like many other artists. Raised by his grandparents and opposed by the family who considered art a vocation for time wasters, Giuseppe De Nittis still managed to attend the School of Painting in Naples and moved to Florence, where he met Macchiaioli. At the age of 21 he moved to Paris, where he found love and was regarded as a professional artist; apart from some short stays in London, the French capital became his home until his untimely death at just 38 years old.
From his works it is possible to understand the sensitivity of Giuseppe De Nittis paintings, an art that mixes Macchiaioli with the new elements of Impressionism and suggestive Japanese influences in various topics, from portraits to interior scenes - the most acclaimed of De Nittis paintings include: The salon of Princess Mathilde, 1883 - up to en plein air views and the bustle of city life. The works of Giuseppe De Nittis speak of a changing world, portrayed with psychological shades and with the unique sophistication that characterizes the painting of this great artist.
In the splendid setting of Palazzo Zabarella in Padova, the extraordinary art of Giuseppe De Nittis brings back to life the spirit and the intensity of the exciting atmosphere of the late nineteenth century, thanks to an unprecedented exhibition, which highlights the uniqueness of this great artist capable of conveying emotions whilst combining Italian tradition with new European art.
From the French skies to the English fog to Vesuvius scenarios, through the hustle and bustle of outdoor Parisian life or in the most exclusive lounges: the works of Giuseppe De Nittis at Padua Italy events represent a fascinating journey through faraway places and atmospheres that have almost been forgotten...
