In Verona, art becomes avant-garde

The exhibition “The art in Verona between avant-garde and tradition: the nineteenth and early twentieth century from Hayez to Casorati” will take place at the Modern Art Gallery ‘Achille Forti’ until 28th February 2019.

The exhibition intends to highlight a constant feature of Verona’s artistic culture, through the centuries, the ability to measure itself with a crossroads of different cultures, while establishing itself as an autonomous and original production center.

The course, which follows in three rooms, presents about 90 works including paintings, works on paper and sculptures that illustrate distinctive episodes of Veronese and Italian history and figurative culture between 1830 and 1920, in a pressing dialectic between the poles of the avant-garde and tradition.
