A New Figurative Art 1920-1945: Works from the Giuseppe Iannaccone Collection

Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art

26 Sep 201823 Dec 2018

Milanese lawyer Giuseppe Iannaccone has been creating, since the early 1990s, one of the most extensive private collections of Italian art from the Inter-war years, featuring renown artists from influential schools and tendencies, like Scuola di Via Cavour, Sei di Torino and Corrente. The exhibition offers an extensive overview of a significant piece of Italian history and of the attempt of artists to reassert their personal values against totalitarianism, through the display of iconic pieces. Works by Luigi Broggini, Renato Guttuso, Carlo Levi, Mario Mafai, Aligi Sassu, Scipione and Emilio Vedova, are exhibited along with pieces by Filippo de Pisis, Fausto Pirandello, Ottone Rosai and a rare figurative sculpture by Lucio Fontana.
