I Capolavori dellArte: paintings from Italian and foreign artists on show in Asiago
From 09 June 2012 to 25 November 2012
Due to its inherent difficulties, oil painting, used since ancient times, was threatening to alter the colours researched by artists. In the 15th century Flemish art managed to perfect this technique thanks to the introduction of shading: by allowing the oil colours to dry out slowly artists could proceed with successive applications and add new layers of colour to obtain paintings with brilliant colours and very fine details. Besides Flemish art, results arising from the use of oil paints are also typified in paintings produced with different techniques, one of them being miniatures. Amongst the artists on show in Asiago are Picasso, Carr, Balla, Severini, Chagall, Dal, de Chirico, Morandi, Guttuso, De Pisis, Fontana and others form the Historic Vanguards.
Vedutismo, Cubism and Spatialism with examples of pop-art and op-art selected according to their historic and artistic importance - are also on show to depict the changes in arts during the 19th and 20th centuries.
The exhibition hosted in Asiago unites the most significant evolutions of Western art and represents one of the most interesting events in Vicenza in 2012, a scientific endeavour to highlight the origins of artistic movements in Italy and abroad. Examples of Flemish art and many more renowned artists who carried out very important experimentation for the future of art: a rich ensemble of paintings and sources, accompanied by two explanatory videos, a printed guide and graphical explanations in each sector.
A dedicated area will display works from Futurism by Gruppo Forma 1, Transavanguardia and artists from contemporary painters in Veneto: an exhibition to reinterpret the History of Art in all its aspects.
