THE SUBTLE CHARM OF THE OBJECT. Still Life from the collections of the Galleria Nazionale D’Arte Moderna 1910 -1950.

April 23rd, 2013 by admin


Still life paintings and sculptures are on display at Rome’s National Gallery of Modern Art (Galleria Nazionale D’Arte Moderna  – Gnam). The exhibit develops through three halls in which the works are accompanied by Haiku poetry in honour of Japanese culture. The visitor, like the still life, is called upon a closer analysis and an introspection that offers a different and extremely personal meaning to each work. The result being an interpretation of what is seen through the eyes of the soul. The selected pieces are lesser known works – those that the public would never see along the usual museum corridors. This is not to say that they are of a lesser quality or significance. They are simply artworks which are generally ignored. Gnam has decided to offer them a special place and allow the public to see another facet of some very famous artists from De Chirico, Manzù and Morandi to Pirandello and De Pisis.
