Ossessione Nordica in Rovigo at Palazzo Roverella

The most interesting Nordic Art Exhibitions in recent years

From 22 February 2014 to 22 June 2014


Ossessione Nordica on display at Palazzo Roverella in Rovigo has already been called one of the most interesting Nordic Art Exhibitions in recent years.

From 22 February to 22 June at Palazzo Roverella in Rovigo, the exhibition on Ossessione Nordica will show how 'Nordic' artists, active between the late 19th and early 20th century, have profoundly influenced Italian art in the 1900s.

This Nordic art exhibition is inspired by a statement of the critic Vittorio Pica who, in the early years of the 20th century, said that Italian artists were in the throes of a kind of 'Nordic obsession'. From this statement one of the most fascinating Rovigo mostre in 2014 comes to life, the first of its kind in Italy.

The Nordic artists exhibit at Palazzo Roverella in 2014wants to show how, for generations, Italian artists have embraced the charm and lure of northern art - from Scandinavia and Germany to Scotland, the Baltic countries and Switzerland - after a first encounter in the early editions of the Biennale Art Exhibition in Venice. Artists such as, Bocklin, Hodler, Klimt, Klinger, von Stuck, Khnopff, Zorn, Larsson and Munch were the protagonists of the first editions of the Biennale, conquering Italy thanks to a modern language and an out of the ordinary sensitivity.

The Palazzo Roverella exhibition in Rovigo will compare artists namely, Sartorio, Morelli, Previati, Laurenti, Fortuny, Wolf Ferrari, De Chirico, De Carolis and De Maria with the main protagonists of Nordic art between 1800s and 1900s revealing similarities, differences and different interpretations.

At the Nordic art gallery, Rovigo, 2014, you will admire the beautiful landscapes of the far north, moving interior scenes and portraits ... fantasy and reality, feelings and emotions, symbols and dreams: the works on display at Rovigo Palazzo Roverella are deeply touching with an immediacy and powerfulness that no one can escape.

The Nordic art exhibition in Rovigo will be divided into several sections, starting from the first editions of the Biennale to their development and their influence on Italian art. It will pay particular attention to artists like Bocklin, Hodler, Klimt, Klinger and von Stuck and their imaginative visions of the belle époque in Central Europe.

Fjords, snowfields and deserted beaches give Nordic landscapes an ethereal connotation, almost spiritual; neat and elegant living spaces where one can almost touch the soul of those who live there, a representation of the human figure which is exactly halfway between psychological research and academic rules: all this and more awaits you at Palazzo Roverella in 2014!

At the Nordic Art Exhibition at Palazzo Roverella etching is an important part of the Biennale with a dedicated section where accuracy, virtuosity and charm give birth to works full of magic and mystery.

The Rovigo mostre at Palazzo Roverella in recent years have aroused interest in Italy for the quality and originality of the exhibition. Ossessione Nordica is no exception, a more intellectual than artistic exhibition, full of thoughts and comparisons!
