An exhibition which speaks of life, health and beauty, to discover a major artist of the Twentieth Century
On 18th November, the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice, launched an exhibition dedicated to the painter Hans-Joachim Staude (born Haiti 1904, died Florence 1973), a German artist known in Florence in the 1900s and whose work is strongly characterized by philosophical inspiration. In the light of new interpretations of his work and his unpublished writings, the “Hans-Joachim Staude in Venice” event has been organized by his children Jakob Staude and Angela Terzani Staude, in collaboration with the Fondazione Giorgio Cini.
For five days, the Sala Piccolo Teatro will hold an exhibition curated by Francesco Poli and Elena Pontiggia of 27 paintings – portraits, landscapes and still lifes – made between 1929 and 1973. The exhibition will be accompanied by a conference, on 18th and 19th November, with talks by 11 art historians from Italy and beyond to look further into research to rediscover the importance of this painter on Italian art of the 1900s. The papers presented at the conference will be collected and published in a book.
Zoé supports this initiative and invites you to visit the exhibition, with free admission, open until 22nd November 2015. For more information: www.staude.it
