The Ragghianti Foundation hosts the great exhibition The child artist. Childhood and primitivisms in early twentieth century Italian art.
The exhibition explores the "regression" towards children's drawing and the desire to recover a primitivist language on the part of important artists of the early decades of the twentieth century.
Starting from the archaisms of Tuscan painters devoted to the study of the masters of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries , the exhibition develops an exciting journey through the works of artists fascinated by the world of children, whose simplicity, poetry and sweetness of the colors and subjects represented.
In the rooms of the Ragghianti Foundation will be exhibited, divided into six sections, over one hundred pieces (paintings, graphics, sculptures, photographs, period magazines, documents) by artists such as Giorgio Morandi , Giacomo Balla, Pablo Picasso , Carlo Carrà , Giorgio de Chirico , Mario Sironi, Ardengo Soffici, Alberto Magri, Lorenzo Viani, Ottone Rosai, Renato Birolli and Alberto Salietti.
