ongoing Tuscan painters of the 19th century

The show

Until November 27 at the “G.Fattori” Civic Museum (Villa Mimbelli, via San Jacopo in Acquaviva 65) an exhibition dedicated to works by 19th century Tuscan painters from a prestigious private collection.

Set up on the first floor of the museum, and integrated into its permanent itinerary, the exhibition will see over 60 paintings by Macchiaioli and Post Macchiaioli on display, with names such as Giovanni Fattori, Signorini, Corcos, Benvenuti ...

Also on display is a curious cowbell decorated by maestro Giovanni Fattori (formerly (formerly exhibited at the “G.Fattori” Museum). Numerous engravings will also be exhibited by the head of the Macchiaioli school.

The collection belongs to the collector Ettore Ermanno Morelli, who recently donated three important works to the "G.Fattori" Civic Museum and the city of Livorno: two by the artist Michele Gordigiani, Self-portrait and The Sartori Sisters and Miss Leight; the third, on the other hand, is a self-portrait by Nino Costa.

As the Councilor for Culture of the Municipality of Livorno Simone Lenzi explains, “there is a double value in this exhibition which is hosted at the“ G.Fattori ”Museum. The first, and most obvious, is that inherent in the works on display, valuable evidence of a golden century of Tuscan painting. The second consists of the collection itself: the collection testifies to the exactness of the collector's taste, the long passion that guides his eye for decades, hunting for paintings that each time expand and define at the same time a taste that is defined in the choice .

Once hung on the wall, the paintings from this private collection tell a coherent story of 19th century Tuscan painting that it is a privilege to offer to the public's eye ".
