Ca’ Pesaro presents exhibition Umberto Moggioli to mark the centenary of the death of Trentino artist Umberto Moggioli, who found his true source of inspiration in Venice and the lagoon.
Moggioli developed his landscape painting alongside Gino Rossi, Pio Semeghini and Tullio Garbari. On the one hand, he rediscovered the atmospheres of Divisionism; on the other, explored opulent stylistic elements from masters like Gino Rossi.
The exhibition aims to rediscover Moggioli by focusing on his plein air portraits: a completely fresh approach that offers a contemporary reinterpretation of his works 100 years from the 1919 exhibition held at Ca’ Pesaro a few months after his untimely death.
