Klimt and Italian art
From an idea of Vittorio Sgarbi, curated by Beatrice Avanzi
At the Mart Museum in Rovereto two hundred artworks recount the influence of the Viennese artist on the great masters of the early twentieth century.
Exceptionally reunited at the Mart Museum the two “Italian” masterpieces by Klimt: “Judith II” and “The Three Ages of Woman”. They are part of two of the largest public collections and testify the passage and spiritual legacy of the Viennese master in Italy, establishing the pivot around which “Klimt and Italian art” develops. About 200 works from important public and private collections of the exhibition analyze Klimt’s influence on great artists of the early twentieth century, such as Felice Casorati, Adolfo Wildt, Vittorio Zecchin, Luigi Bonazza.
Italians re-elaborate the Klimtian influence in a unique way: the references are visible in the decorations, lines, colors and style that ends up mixing with the local artistic characteristics, allowing the birth of new research. With this exhibition the Mart Museum presents a varied and complex overview, in which different disciplines – from painting to decorative arts – coexist under the sign of a recognizable sumptuous, seductive and decadent taste.
