The Macchiaioli. The collections revealed

Macchiaioli in Rome. It is certainly interesting to know an artistic movement such as the movement of the Macchiaioli, but to discover the works within the context of the private collections that originally held them is fascinating.

The exhibition dedicated to the Macchiaioli arranged in Rome at the Chiostro del Bramante on view until September 4th 2016, shows over 110 works of art that belonged to great collectors of the past, who were cultured and refined personalities, art patrons who shared a great passion for painting and love for beauty.

The exhibition offers an itinerary of 9 sections, each one named after the collection of provenance, through which you can discover the Macchiaioli, the most important 19th century Italian movement in painting, and the historical climate that was the backdrop to the trajectory of these artists.

The themes, the content, the personalities of this revolutionary movement are described through the masterpieces sold to the collectors, the paintings purchased to support painter friends going through hard times, and the works donated by the artists themselves in order to enrich the largest picture galleries at that time.
On display paintings by Telemaco Signorini, Federico Zandomeneghi, Giovanni Fattori (in Padua an important exhibition dedicated to Fattori has just closed), and many more.
The exhibition dedicated to the Macchiaioli in Rome shows the works created between the 19th century and the 20th century, which evince how the innovations of the Macchiaioli were taken up and developed by later generations of painters.
