Paris' roaring twenties: Italy puts Picasso, Dali on show
Sunday 18 September 2011
Picasso, Dali and Modigliani are at the heart of an exhibition on "the Roaring Twenties" in Paris, organised by the city of Ferrara in northern Italy and held in the historic Diamond Palace.
The "city of light" was the capital of art from the end of World War I until the start of the 1930s, hosting celebrated artists from Monet to Matisse, Mondrian, Braque, Duchamp, De Chirico, Miro and Magritte.
The exhibition sets out to recapture the intense period of creativity in Paris through paintings by the great masters of the era, as well as sculptures, photos and drawings borrowed from several museums and private collections.
Among the works on display are Picasso's "Maternity", Marc Chagall's "The Cock", Michail Larionov's "Costume for a Soldier in the Ballet Chout" and Henri Matisse's "Reclining Nude II".
"Gli anni folli: The Paris of Modigliani, Picasso and Dali" runs at the Diamond Palace until January 8, 2012.
