Between Symbolism and Futurism. Gaetano Previati

On the centenary of his death, Gaetano Previati’s hometown pays tribute to him with an exhibition organised by the “Fondazione Ferrara Arte” and the “Gallerie d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea”, which preserve a vast collection of paintings and works on paper by the artist.

The exhibition presents more than sixty works, combining oils, pastels and drawings from Ferrara's civic collections (about thirty-five) with a considerable series of works from public and private collections. The selection is completed by some important unpublished documents.

The exhibition aims at highlighting the constant tension in Previati's research towards overcoming the traditional boundaries of “easel” painting, understood as a means of expression, as a visual code or as a way of interacting with the public. Fascinated by the expression of feelings and his commitment to large formats due to his late-Romantic education, the artist adopts an experimental approach to the subjects and mechanisms of vision that allows him to achieve unprecedented results. This is why his research played a fundamental role in the renewal of Italian art at the turn of the century: Previati is considered an heir to the masters of the past, a leading figure of Italian Divisionism, but also an example for the young Futurists.

The entrance to the Castle is permitted in limited numbers: a maximum of 15 visitors every 20 minutes.
