800 Unpublished Drawings from the Venetian 19th Century
An exhibition of 19th Century drawings, most of which are on display for the very first time, will be presented from December 19th to April 11th 2010 at Correr Museum. There will be works by Caffi, Pividor, Guardi, Moro, Bosa, Vervloet and others, a vast patrimony obscured by the fame of the vast collections of drawings from the eighteenth century that now can receive the attention it deserve.
The collection of 19th century Venetian drawings is one of the biggest on the graphic scene of that century, but it is still unknown by many people.
The exhibition, curated by Giandomenico Romanelli, wants to highlight the value of these works whose leitmotiv is Venice: Venice as subject, as place of conception and realization or as inspiring muse.
The Venice that appears in the nineteenth-century drawings of the Correr is surprising: both modern and ancient, distracted and suffering, secret and well-known; it reveals the nerves and muscles of a body in suffering that refuses to yield, full of life and dynamic. Above all, there are outbursts of reality, of what is true, going beyond rhetoric and regrets, beyond nostalgia and laments.
