‘Guernica: genesis of a masterpiece’ in Cortona

21.07.2022 - 06.01.2023

In Cortona, the preparatory studies for Guernica and the works on war of Italian Neorealism.

The exhibition itinerary winds its way through the works of the main exponents of Italian Neo-realism – including Guttuso, Manzù, Bueno and others – from the Usiglio-Ingrosso family collection and the preparatory studies for Guernica. Here, at the heart of the exhibition, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in Pablo Picasso’s creative process, following the ideas, afterthoughts and corrections that led him to conceive Guernica: the universal anti-war manifesto. The 42 preparatory studies – faithful reproductions of the original drawings, made in 1990 by Unesco with the authorisation of the Picasso Foundation – provide an intimate insight into one of the greatest masterpieces of 20th century art and, at the same time, an understanding of its author and his genius.

Info: The exhibition will be open daily until 6 January, from 10 am to 7 pm.
