Fondazione Giorgio Cini

18 Nov 201522 Nov 2015

In the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice inaugurates an event dedicated to the German painter Hans-Joachim Staude (Haiti 1904 – Florence 1973), who distinguished himself in Florence in the 1900s, in the light of new interpretations and his unpublished writings. The exhibition has been organized by his son and daughter, Jakob Staude and Angela Staude Terzani, in collaboration with the Giorgio Cini Foundation and is curated by Francesco Poli and Elena Pontiggia. For five days, the Sala Piccolo Teatro will be hosting the exhibition, consisting of 27 paintings – portraits, landscapes, still lifes – painted between 1929 and 1973, and will also be running a conference (18th and 19th November) involving 11 art historians, Italian and other, who will present further research that helps rediscover the importance of this painter within the context of Italian art of the 1900s.

Hans-Joachim Staude, was one of the most interesting painters of his generation, who is still little known in Italy. 27 paintings carefully selected by Francesco Poli and Elena Pontiggia, document his personal artistic evolution amidst the many influences of Italian art of the 1900s, and reveal his precise stylistic currency and originality which make him one of the most “Italian” among German painters of the twentieth century.
