'Tutankhamon Caravaggio, Van Gogh. Evening and nocturnals from the Egyptians to the 20th Century' ... The new exhibition at the Palladio Basilica in Vicenza curated by Marco Goldin promises to be another great success!

From 24 December 2014 to 2 June 2015, the Vicenza exhibition 2014 at the Palladian Basilica will show a series of masterpieces, divided into six thematic sections that describe the evening and night throughout the history of art, starting from the Egyptians to the contemporary experiences.

The new great project of Linea d'Ombra at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza is devoted to a fascinating introspective dedicated to night: emotions, symbols, feelings and great masterpieces will take you on an intense journey through the centuries to discover the different aspects and interpretations of 'night' in the history of art.

For the opening of the Vicenza art exhibition: 'Tutankhamon Caravaggio, Van Gogh exhibit. Evening and nocturnals from the Egyptians to the 20th Century', the most magical night of the year has been chosen: 24 December. After opening at 4pm, the Vicenza exhibition 2014 of Linea d'Ombra and Goldin as an exception will be open until 1am!

The new Goldin's exhibition at the Palladio Basilica in Vicenza boasts 115 works from major collections and museums from around the world. Do not expect a show of black canvases, stars and shades of dusk: evening and night will be investigated in a much more psychological sense, with stories, events and fascinating story lines.

Below you will find a taste of the extraordinary set up for the 'Tutankhamon Caravaggio, Van Gogh exhibition at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, Italy. Evening and nocturnals from the Egyptians to the 20th century'. After the first section of the Egyptian culture, the focus of the exhibition of nightlife in Vicenza will be on the following centuries, embracing works and artists from the 15th to the 20th century.

The night following the river. The Egyptians and the long journey

The first section of the exhibition in Vicenza exhibition 2014 Linea d'Ombra explores the significance of the night in the Egyptian culture. 22 statues and artefacts, from the vast collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, that tell of a highly spiritual and eternal night: a journey after death that remains connected to life through images, objects, signs and symbols that accompany the deceased into the darkness. Marco Goldin leaves nothing to chance in his exhibitions: the construction of this first section will recall the atmosphere of the magical and endless desert nights.

Figures on the edge of life. From a window comes the night

The second section of the Basilica Palladiana exhibition 2014/2015 features artists such as Giorgione, Caravaggio, Titian, El Greek, Tintoretto, Poussin and many more. Works on religious subjects, especially dedicated to the life of Christ, showing human figures in night settings through masterpieces from the 13th to the 20th century.

Of the Moon and the stars. And of sunsets before. The century of nature as evening draws in

In this fascinating section of the Van Gogh exhibition Vicenza 2014, Turner, Millet, Monet, Church, are on display at the Palladio Basilica. Amazing landscapes immortalized between the sunset and the rise of the stars in the sky. The most representative is the 19th century, from Romanticism to Impressionism: the Basilica Palladiana, exhibitions 2014-15, will host famous paintings by Friedrich, Pissarro, Corot and Mondrian before moving to overseas interpretations by Allston, Cole, Lane, Winslow Homer and Wyeth. An exciting experience, to capture the nuances and interpretations of evening and nocturnals chosen in Vicenza by Linea d'Ombra from Van Gogh, to Nuenen, Kiefer and many other great artists.

The white and the black of the night. A hand engraving a plate

The fourth section designed by Linea d'Ombra on the evening and nocturnals is dedicated to engraving and, in particular, the work of two great artists: on the one hand, the religious subjects of Rembrandt, on the other the famous prisons of Piranesi.

Evenings and nights of the 20th century. The sky and the spirit

The penultimate section of this Vicenza exhibition 2014 - 2015 moves to the 20th century, taking into account both the American abstract side of Morris Louis and Mark Rothko, and artists such as De Staël and Andrew Wyeth, between figuration, abstraction and deeper meanings.

On these evenings and nights you can get lost. The exhibition in a room

The exhibition ends with a kind of summary devoted to the various topics discussed in the previous sections of the Van Gogh in Vicenza 2014 exhibition at the Palladio's Basilica: Luca Giordano, Klee, Gauguin, Hopper and other great artists for a conclusion to take your breath away!
