The exhibition in Desenzano: from Van Dyck to De Chirico

The exhibition in Desenzano: from Van Dyck to De Chirico

1600: The Age of Van Dyck / 1900: De Chirico's Journey.The exhibition will be open to the public until Sunday 8 October, open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.

Set up in the castle, the exhibition is structured in two distinct but interconnected sections on the two floors of the exhibition venue: the first section is dedicated to national and international 17th century works, while the second will host pictorial research relating to the first 40 years of the Italian 20th century, in an overall excursus of 50 works.

The leitmotif of the exhibition will be the reflection on the painting of Realism born in the 17th century with the Baroque season and its direct consequences on the painting of the time to arrive at the gates of the 20th century when reality, probed by Giorgio de Chirico, will be filtered through the introspection of the unconscious. De Chirico, thanks to his painting of a classicist matrix, becomes a point of conjunction between the two eras, theorising a Metaphysics that will influence the birth of Surrealism and, together with Francis Bacon, of Existential Realism; at the same time Giorgio de Chirico will be fundamental to a Return to Order that will give life to Magic Realism and the German New Objectivity.

The exhibition will be open to the public until Sunday 8 October, and can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 6.30 pm.
