Primavera a Palazzo Fortuny 2014 - Dora Maar: Despite Picasso

Born in Paris in the early 1900s, Dora Maar (named Henriette Theodora Markovitch) is remembered as a woman of rare beauty, serious, aloof, romantically linked to the painter Pablo Picasso. After studying at the Academy of André Lhote and at the École de Photographie de la Ville de Paris, during which she knew Henri Cartier-Bresson and Emmanuel Sougez, the Dora Maar exhibition shows her talent as a photographer, painter and poet, including portraits, nudes, advertising and street photography and experiences during her life. The Dora Maar exhibit in Venice at the Palazzo Fortuny presents the best of her vast production. In particular, her 'street' photographs deserve a lot of attention, as they describe misery, illness, childhood and everyday life, with interest to the most eccentric and maverick behaviours. Dora Maar photography is a fascinating exhibition to learn about her sensitive and eclectic work in one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century.

Primavera a Palazzo Fortuny 2014 - Ritsue Mishima: Tras Forma


The Palazzo Fortuny exposition in Venice in 2014 will also present the work of the Japanese artist Ritsue Mishima: glass in endless variations and shades inspired by nature and light reflections. Ritsue Mishima - artist - combines the ancient art of glass in Venice with its oriental culture. The result is contemporary and attention to detail plays a decisive role: transparency, brightness and the colours are calibrated based on the space where the works will be placed. Ritsue Mishima in Venice exhibits her latest works inspired by the work of Mariano Fortuny.

Primavera a Palazzo Fortuny 2014 - Anne-Karin Furunes: Shadows


Anne-Karin Furunes, Norwegian artist born in 1961, will exhibit 'shadows' at the Palazzo Fortuny Museum in Venice, obtained from scaled image pixel. Anne-Karin Furunes - art -dissolves the subject in an abstract set of points that change shape and meaning depending on the light and movement of the viewer. In the works exhibited in Venice, the artist is inspired by photographs of Mariano Fortuny - who repeatedly shot female portraits of the Palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei - infusing them with his unique style.

Primavera a Palazzo Fortuny 2014 - Barbara Paganin: Memoria Aperta


Palazzo Fortuny art exhibit in Venice, Italy shows the fascinating work of Barbara Paganino - the result of a research among antique dealers in Venice to find objects that were once jealously guarded in a small chest of a child: 'external' memories that blend with those of Barbara Paganin and leave space for the imagination of the viewer. For the first time the artist puts more found objects and elements provided by other memories into her work: a small compass, miniatures of 19th-century portraits, animal mascot of porcelain, mice, hippos, rabbits and elephants made of ivory. Everything tells a story that everyone can interpret freely following the thread of their own memories.

Primavera a Palazzo Fortuny 2014 - The Amazons of photography from the collection of Mario Trevisan


An anthology of female photography between the 1800s and 1900s, from the large collection of Mario Trevisan, a cultured and attentive Venetian collector. At the Palazzo Fortuny Venice exhibition - 'Amazons of photography' present great female photographers of the past, women who were able to engage in a new form of expression and the results are often better than their male colleagues.
