Lorenzo Mattotti's strips

From 25 February to 4 June 2017

Casa Cavazzini

There is always a story to be told - even about a small Italian province such as ours. And this was precisely what the young artist Lorenzo Mattotti set out to do during the early years of his artistic training here in Udine. Now, MATTOTTI: Primi lavori, a new exhibition showcasing his early works, will in turn recount the story of this initial phase in the artist’s development. The retrospective, which follows in the wake of the hugely popular Mattotti: Sconfini exhibition currently on show at Villa Manin until 19 March, will run from 25 February to 4 June 2017 at Casa Cavazzini – Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Udine. Initiated and curated by Giovanni Duri and co-curated by Vania Gransinigh, Conservator of Casa Cavazzini, the exhibition aims to provide an essential introduction to Lorenzo Mattotti’s work and offers fundamental insights into the works currently on display at Villa Manin.

An artist of great technical ability, Riccarda de Eccher has succeeded in transforming her personal passion for the mountains and nature into the creative inspiration for a series of large-scale watercolours offering new perspectives on landscape painting. In de Eccher’s works, the Carnic Alps become the arch protagonists of the scene. By virtue of the technique employed, watercolour, we are more used to admiring such scenes in far smaller dimensions but here they expand across the surface of the paintings, totally enveloping the viewer in their visual space.

Napoleone Pellis Self-portrait 1920

November 3, 2016 - April 2, 2017

From the beginning of November, a newly arranged collection showcasing the Museum's Realist paintings will be on show in the Gallery's ground floor rooms. This new exhibition will trace the course of the development of Realism both locally and nationally over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Over the course of the nineteenth century, in response to the challenges posed by the ever more rigorous comparisons made between painting and the photographic image, artists began to turn their attention to reality, in all its manifestations, in search of new fonts of inspiration. The most favoured subjects became landscapes, scenes from daily life, and portraits; it was in these areas  that new modes of direct representation of reality developed in an effort to make the image ever more immediate and 'instantaneous'. Leading this process of artistic renewal was En Plein Air painting, while other techniques for representing reality developed in the wake of scientific discoveries made during the late nineteenth century. Divisionism and symbolism made their own contribution to this new trajectory, carrying the principles of realism far beyond the threshold of the twentieth century.
