Francisco Goya in Milan ‘til June 2010

Palazzo Reale in Milan is still waiting for us with one of its great exhibitions ongoing since March 17th 2010 and entitled “Goya e il Mondo Moderno” (“Goya and the Modern World”), which will be on display until June 27th 2010.

We are talking about a great exhibition dedicated to the influence the Spanish painter had on modern art, from Picasso to Bacon. An extraordinary collection made up of over 180 works, like paintings, drawings and engravings.

Therefore, the aim of the exhibition is to link and analyze the connections between the painter and other famous modern artists, by starting from a deep research about the themes faced by the Aragonese artist: the image of the new society, the expression of subjectivity, reactions with gestures, and violence.

Among the artists present at the exhibition, we find: Delacroix, Klee, David, Kokoschka, Victor Hugo, Mirò, Klinger, Picasso, Nolde, Bacon, Kirchner, Pollock, Guttuso and de Kooning.

Francisco Goya’s work had a great influence on all the artistic movements belonging to the 19th and 20th centuries, from the Impressionism to Symbolism, from Expressionism to Surrealism, and contributed to strongly influence the contemporary art and culture.

The importance of the body, irrationality, terror, fear, and violence are the incomparable features of Goya’s painting, elements that mark the painter style with immediately recognizable lights and shapes.

The exhibition is managed by Valeriano Bozal and Concepción Lomba, two important Spanish experts about Francisco Goya and contemporary art, supported by the Ministry of Cultural Activities and Heritage, and it was born from the cooperation among Sociedad Estatal para la Acción Cultural Exterior (SEACEX), Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores y de Cooperación, Ministerio de Cultura di Spagna, Fundación Goya en Aragón and Palazzo Reale in Milan.

So, Milan awaits you all at the luxurious Palazzo Reale with the exhibition “Goya and the Modern World”, until June 27th 2010.
