The show

Twenty years ago, on June 13, 1999, Renato Nesi died, one of the most famous and appreciated painters of Treviso in the second half of the twentieth century. Dutifully, the city of Treviso pays tribute to him with an exhibition that takes place at the same time in the spaces of the Luigi Bailo Civic Museum, the Liceo Artistico Gallery and the Diocesan Museum. The entire career of the artist, from the early beginnings to the end of the thirties, is traced through a rich anthology of works - 70 including paintings, drawings and engravings -, which allow us to appreciate its evolution in its multiple creative phases. Even in his twenties and freshman of the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice, in 1942 Nesi took part in the 11th Treviso art exhibition at the Palazzo dei Trecento at the invitation of Giuseppe Mazzotti, before being present at all the provincial exhibitions held in the Fifties and beyond.
He was one of the architects of the revival of art in the city in the immediate post-war period with the Rossignona group, thus undertaking a personal path of research that led him to results of particular importance, both in the field of landscape painting and in the portraiture.
The exhibition, curated by Eugenio Manzato and Raffaello Padovan and enriched by a catalog that represents an updated critical point of view on the artist, was made possible thanks to the decisive contribution of private collectors and in particular of the artist's family, which in the occasion he generously wanted to donate to the Municipal Administration two of the most important works in the exhibition: "Self-Portrait" (1942) and "The Empty Plate" (1943).
