The show

From Friday 8 November 2019 to Sunday 1 March 2019 the MAN Museum of Nuoro presents the first museum exhibition of Anna Marongiu (Cagliari 1907-Ostia 1941), curated by Luigi Fassi. The exhibition represents an important step in the research of the MAN on Sardinian and Italian twentieth century art.

The exhibition develops around three cycles of illustrations dedicated to literary masterpieces created by Marongiu between 1926 and 1930: the complete series of the tables of A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare (1930), the illustrations of I Promessi Sposi by Alessandro Manzoni (1926) and the plates of The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens (1929). This last work, composed of 262 ink and watercolor drawings, is the heart of the retrospective: on loan from the Charles Dickens Museum in London it is today, ninety years after its creation, for the first time visible in a museum.
