Italian art from the 1920s and 1930s

In the Italian art of the 1920s and 1930s, artists began to look at reality and to interpret the world in a new way. The phenomenon, entitled magical realism, emerged after the end of the First World War and lasted throughout the 1920s. Magical realist art was characterised by the rejection of everyday reality, solemn monumentality, and a stylised, staged quality. The works display an identifiable sense of silence, which is symbolised by, for example, a sense of waiting, dreaming, strangeness, and loneliness.

The exhibition is produced by 24ORE Cultura of Italy, and it is curated by Gabriella Belli and Valerio Terraroli. Some 80 works from Italy and elsewhere in Europe will be on display at the exhibition, which will be further augmented with works from the Ateneum collection. The artists featured at the exhibition include Felice Caserati, Antonio Donghi, Ubaldo Oppi and Giorgio de Chirico.
