Rosai Masterpieces between two Wars (1918 – 1939)

29.10.2020 - 05.03.2021

A suggestive art exhibition by Ottone Rosai in the historical Palazzo del Podestà in Montevarchi. Fifty works of art, among which you can admire drawings and oil paintings that refer to a precise moment of the artist: the years between 1919 and 1932, the twenty years between the two Great Wars.

What springs from Ottone Rosai’s creativity between 1919 and 1932 enjoys prodigious and unusual essences.

In this time span he reached his highest artistic moment and not only of his century. As sustained by a constantly vivid inspiration fueled by a special attention to the great Italian classics, he took every new painting or drawing to dizzying heights.

The main works of this period are present in the exhibition as well as some unreleased works and others missing for a long time. Lingering in front of these masterpieces means getting lost in space and time and relive moments of the past still significant nowadays and, at times, similar to our present.
