FILIPPO DE PISIS 

OPENING: 20 November 2001 6 p.m.

From 20 November 2001 to 19 January 2002

The exhibition, curated by Pier Paolo Benedetto, documents an activity span of over twenty years with about thirty paintings, and starts chronologically from a portrait of a "Peasant from Tyrol" executed in 1924, the year in which the artist , then twenty-eight, spends his summer holidays in Gogna di Cadore with his beloved mother. From the period of full maturity, in the Thirties and Forties, various floral compositions are well understood, in particular “La rosa che sogna” (1940) and “I fiori” (1941). These are the years in which Luigi Tibertelli, known as de Pisis, following the outbreak of the Second World War, had to reluctantly leave Paris, a beloved city where he lived and worked from 1925 to 1939, achieving international success. The exhibition continues with some still lifes such as "Homage to Morandi" (1940), "Still life - apples" (1941) and "Still life with bottles" (1943), and ends with a "Landscape of Brugherio" and "Fiori ”From 1951, performed when de Pisis was already hospitalized for the first time in the mental hospital at Villa Fiorita, in Brugherio, where the master died in 1956.

Catalogue available.
