Focus. Mario Sironi in the Allaria Collection
05 March - 11 June 2017, Drawings and paintings
Born during the postwar era from the friendship between Mario Sironi and Antonio Allaria, physician at the Codivilla Putti hospital in Cortina d'Ampezzo, the collection, now in Rovereto thanks to the deposit from Alessandra Allaria, reinforces Sironi’s already significant presence in the Mart collections.
Organized by thematic nuclei, the exhibition features a large group of drawings and paintings by Sironi that allows the artist’s most intimate dimension to emerge, delineating several key points in his artistic enquiry: from the earliest dalliances with Futurism to the modern classicism of the Novecento group to the most mature phase of his work.
Completing the exhibition are monographic rooms dedicated to Anton Zoran Mušič, Renato Guttuso and Graham Sutherland, also linked to Allaria through friendship, in a comparison between the works on deposit and the masterpieces of the same artists from the museum’s permanent collection.
The exhibition ends with a varied selection of graphic works by, among others, Filippo de Pisis, Giorgio Morandi and Giorgio de Chirico, giving visitors a glimpse of the vibrant cultural atmosphere of Cortina, back when it was frequented by artists and art lovers.
