Exhibitions in Treviso. Treviso will become the capital of art between 2016 and 2017 thanks to a series of exhibitions very different from each other, but that will satisfy all tastes.
From Impressionism masterpieces to paintings by Titian, Rubens and Rembrandt, to paintings by Guttuso, Vedova, Schifano and other contemporary artists who are making Italian art history.

The author of this project, which will involve the whole city of Treviso, is Marco Goldin, who with his own society “Linea d’Ombra” has produced successful exhibitions attracting millions of visitors.
Thanks to him Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer arrived in Bologna, as I show HERE, and he himself organized the exhibition dedicated to Nocturnals in art (I show HERE my photos about the exhibition), bringing to Vicenza a lot of masterpieces including three paintings by Van Gogh.

In this post you will find the complete list of the planned exhibitions, the dates and practical information.

Exhibitions in Treviso: all the events

The heart of this exhibition project will be the big exhibition, maybe the most important ever organized, dedicated to the stories of Impressionism of which I’ve already given all the details and of which I’ve already described the sections of its exhibition itinerary.
“Storia dell’Impressionismo” (“Stories of Impressionism”), this is the title of the exhibition, will bring to Italy 120 works by the great artists who made history of the artistic movement, on show at the Museum of Santa Caterina.

The same museum will host the exhibition “Tiziano Rubens Rembrandt. L’immagine femminile tra Cinquecento e Seicento” (Titian Rubens Rembrandt. The female image between the 16th century and the 17th century”).
On display three masterpieces from the Edinburgh Scottish National Gallery from which Impressionists drew inspiration in defining the female image: “Venus Anadyomene” by Titian, “The feast of Herodes” by Rubens, and “A woman in bed” by Rembrandt.

“Da Guttuso a Vedova a Schifano. Il filo della pittura in Italia nel secondo Novecento” (“From Guttuso to Vedova to Schifano.
The thread of Italian painting during the second half of the 20th century”) is the title of the third planned exhibition dedicated to Italian painting between the late 1910s and the late 1930s. Almost 50 artists on show, each one of them with one of his representative work.

The last event is “De Pictura. 12 pittori in Italia” (“ De Pictura. 12 painters in Italy”), and is closely connected to the previous exhibition organized at the historical Palazzo Giacomelli.
An exhibition dedicated to a generation of current Italian artists and to their latest works.

  1. le mostre di Linea d’ombra sono sempre affollatissime ma credo che un giro a Treviso meriti!
    Farai un post sulle mostre dell’autunno inverno 2016? per ora mi intrigano i Maya a Verona e Ariosto a Ferrara….
