Ritratto di donna.
Il sogno degli anni Venti
e lo sguardo di Ubaldo Oppi
PORTRAIT OF A WOMAN
THE DREAM OF THE TWENTIES
AND THE GAZE OF UBALDO OPPI
The 1920s are characterised by change and modernity: during those years, the most charming international art movement is that of Magical Realism, in which the vision of reality is wrapped in an atmosphere of wonder and expectation. In Italy, this vision is often portrayed by evoking memories of the Classicism and the Renaissance. Following this movement, intense portraits of strong women were created, standing out on the canvas with powerful personalities, loved, sometimes even feared, but always celebrated in their mesmerising beauty.
Ubaldo Oppi (Bologna 1889 – Vicenza 1942) is the absolute protagonist of those years, one of the most famous artists in Europe and the United States, with his works being sold in splendid collections.
The exhibition will be hosted in the Basilica Palladiana.
Part of a project to relaunch the Palladian Basilica in Vicenza and make it into a venue for exhibitions with an international scope.
