The nude school. Giulia Thun at the British Academy in Rome.

Buonconsiglio Castle presents for the first time this vast collection of foglios, for the most-part comprising male and female nude studies, created in the British Academy studios in the company of artists from all over Europe


Trento, Castello del Buonconsiglio, 20th June - 1st November 2015

Rome in the twenties: a cultural landscape undergoing rapid change in which crucial historic events take place. The artistic world takes on an extraordinary vitality against the backdrop of a new and imperious style of politics.
It is in this epoch that Giulia Violante Thun (1895-1970) studied for long periods at the British Academy in Rome. The daughter of Sigismondo Giorgio Maria Thun Hohenstein (1849-1907) and Maria Anna Consolati di Seregnano (1858-1930), Giulia was identified, throughout her long life, with her family's glorious past and was celebrated within a domestic horizon for the natural style of a noble amateur.
A large recently discovered collection of drawings reveals an extraordinary phase of her life and her development as an artist. Placed together, they also reveal partly forgotten aspects of Italian and international culture of the period.
Buonconsiglio Castle is proud to present to the public, for the first time, this vast collection of foglios, for the most-part comprising male and female nude studies, that were created in the British Academy studios in the company of artists from all over Europe.
The exhibition has been realised with the help of the Provincial Archives of Trento, which conserves the drawings, and with the support of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto.
