Giacomo Favretto Venice fascination and seduction
From 31 July 2010 to 21 November 2010
Co produced with the Chiostro of the Bramante in Rome, this Correr exhibition include an extensive set of unpublished works, totalling around eighty pieces and covering the entire range of Favrettos production. Some of the masterpieces on display are unknown to the public and come from museums or private collections. The exhibition also offers a view of the artists work in relation and comparison with other Venetian painters of the same period, such as Ettore Tito, Alessandro Milesi, Guglielmo Ciardi e Luigi Nono.
During the exhibition visitors will be able to admire works from every stage of Favrettos artistic development, from his beginning at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, his success at the Brera Academy and up to his participation in the 1878 Universal Paris Exhibition, which was a source of new inspiration and technical ideas.
The exhibition then continues with works from the Eighties, which at that time metà with resounding success with both critics and the general public. In these Favretto described at the highest level every day life in Venice using slight ironic touches in the guise of Longhi and Tiepolo - but without failing to adhere to the fashion and tastes of his time.
Amongst them are Susanna and the two old men, on loan from the Budapest National Gallery, on display in Italy for the very first time, and the outstanding The laundresses from the Katalinic collection. His latest masterpiece, Modern Stroll, which was purchased by the King of Italy and is currently privately owned, concludes the exhibition.
