Antonio Fontanesi e la sua Eredità. From 30 March to 14 July 2019 the Civic Museums of Reggio Emilia host, in honor of the two hundred years since its birth, some of the most significant works of the artist from Reggio Emilia.
Considered one of the most influential painters of the 1800s, Fontanesi, he devoted himself mainly to landscape painting in which light has always played a central role. In fact, he favored the evening or morning time which, due to the myriad of colors and shades, allowed the artist to make the most of the light to create works in which one can see a strong sense of melancholy but also of romance. He can be considered another deeper reflecting the feelings of the human soul.
The exhibition will be, through five sections, but of everyday life, as if to highlight the influence it has had on artists who, after him, focused their works on the reproduction of landscapes with the need to transmit their most intimate emotions.
For the occasion, a tour package is planned which includes, in addition to the guided tour of the Civic Museums to discover Fontanesi, also a tour to discover the city. There will also be tastings of typical products from the region and visits to modern artworks, such as the Parco Progetti Calatrava and the Maramotti collection.
We look forward to meeting you here.
