The Palazzo Strozzi in Florence dedicates an exhibition to the pioneers of modern art in Spain: Picasso, Miro and Dali, who played an important role not only in the birth of the avant-garde of their native country, and also worldwide.
Under the title “Picasso, Miro, Dali. Angry Young Men: the Birth of Modernity” the show, which will open on March 12, focuses on the pre-Cubist Picasso, in the years 1900-1905, marked by his political convictions, while Joan Miro will be represented by his work of the period 1915-1929 and, finally, Dali masterpieces from 1920 to 1925, presenting his times before developing pictorial Surrealism.
Picasso policies raids began in Madrid in 1901 when he founded the magazine Arte Joven with Asis Soler, close friend, first publishing his drawings in which he sympathized with the poor. Perhaps one of the most important Picasso and Miro common features, since the latter was attributed the murder of the painting, which was born from a deep hatred of bourgeois art.
Dalí, much younger than Miro and Picasso, felt a great admiration for these geniuses of Spanish art. After being expelled from the academy in 1926, Dalí moved to Paris where he finally met his idol Picasso.
The exhibition explores the beginnings of these important figures of modern art, placing emphasis on the avant-garde revolution they marked with their art and which was already masterfully distilled in their earlier work.
For all those fans of Picasso, Miro and Dali, the exhibition is definitely a must. Rent apartments in Florence and be inspired by the innate talent of these masters of classical Spanish art, until July 17, 2011.?
