The exhibition, inaugurated last autumn, can be visited until June 27 in Montevarchi at the Palazzo del Podestà in the historic center.
Fifty works by the Tuscan master are on display for a retrospective referring to a precise moment of the artist: the years between 1919 and 1932, the twenty years between the two Great Wars, with unpublished works and rediscovered paintings.
Ottone Rosai (Florence 1895 – Ivrea 1957), a man with overwhelming passions, was an artist who chose to read the novelties of his time in the light of the great Tuscan art of the fourteenth-fifteenth century. The works all come from private collections and the public will be able to admire well-known paintings but also – and this is one of the peculiarities of this exhibition – completely unpublished drawings and oils, which emerged from the research that prof. Faccenda, curator of the event, led to the private collections and homes of those who, in Tuscany but not only, had relations with Rosai or with the gallery owners and heirs of him.
In the month of June, the Municipality of Montevarchi also foresees an extension of the opening days with the possibility of visiting the exhibition in the elegant rooms of the Palazzo del Podestà even on weekends, thanks to the online ticket office that allows you to book in the different time slots and always guarantee a visit in compliance with the anticovid rules.
The exhibition is also accompanied by an elegant illustrated catalog edited by the publisher Edifir.
Ottone Rosai: Masterpieces between the two wars is open to the public until June 27 on the following days: from Tuesday to Friday 4 pm – 7 pm; Saturday, Sunday and holidays 10 am – 8 pm.
