closed The virtues of friendship

The show

The exhibition The virtues of friendship will open to the public on 14 May . Antelma Santini and Domicella d'Incisa di Camerana at the Boncompagni Ludovisi Museum belonging to the Directorate of State Museums of the City of Rome directed by Mariastella Margozzi. The exhibition, curated by Matilde Amaturo , will remain open to the public until Sunday 11 September 2022 .

It is an exhibition of drawings and prints by two little-known artists, linked by a friendship and common diligence in studies and research. The drawings and prints on display cover a time span between 1910 and 1970 . The donation of the works to the Museum (October 2021) was commissioned by the heirs of the Marquise Domicella d'Incisa di Camerana (Mrs. Giovanna Guidi and the executors Michele Simeoni and Paola Paletti). All the works have been selected on the theme " female portrait ", in homage to the Museum, which focuses its interests and its collections on women.

The drawings and prints will be exhibited, in which the artists, by virtue of their profession, depict women with a partial eye and gaze, both when it comes to fellow painters intent on learning a profession, and when it comes to " other women ”in the anonymity of their period dress, detached from an environmental context. In the specific case, the exhibition on the theme "Portrait" is a pretext or better "symbolic reason for friendship", which aims to reproduce in synthesis the multiple abilities in describing the human figure.
