Palazzo Strozzi, one of the most beautiful palaces in Via Tornabuoni in Florence, close to the Palazzo Larderel will host the exhibition “Picasso and the Spanish modernity ” from September 20th, 2014 to January 15th, 2015.
After the admirable success of the exhibition on “Picasso, Mirò, Dali” in 2011, the 2014 exhibition will present major works of one of the greatest painters of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso and as well as other major Spanish artists such as Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Juan Gris, Marie Blanchard, Julio González. This exhibition comes after another great one devoted to two masters of mannerism: Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino which was held until July 2014. Palazzo Strozzi therefore takes us from the “modern manner” of the 16th century‘s to the “modern art” of the 20th century.
Thanks to the collaboration between the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, the exhibition will present around 90 works of the production of Picasso and other artists, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings and a film shootings. Among the works on display are famous masterpieces such as the Portrait of Dora Maar, the Horse Head and the Painter, the model of Picasso, Siurana, the Path by Miró, as well as drawings, etchings and paintings of Picasso preparatory to the great masterpiece Guernica, which have never been shown in such numbers outside of Spain.
Palazzo Strozzi is located in via Tornabuoni in the heart of Florence. Commissioned by the Florentine merchant Filippo Strozzi, its foundations were laid in 1489 but it was finished only in 1538. The Palazzo remained the property of the Strozzi family until 1937. Since the Second World War, Palazzo Strozzi has been one of the most exciting and innovative exhibition spaces in Europe. Every exhibition is labeled in English and Italian. There are special labels and audio guides specially conceived for families and children, interactive experiences as well as innovative workshops and kits enabling the visitors to actively explore each exhibition.
This is an event not to be missed, not only by art lovers but by all who can take this opportunity to stay in Florence, one of the most beautiful cities of the world, possibly residing in a beautiful apartment in Palazzo Larderel, Via Tornabuoni , nearly in front of Palazzo Strozzi.
