Italian Divisionism: Gazes and Perspectives. A presentation and book signing with author Annie-Paule Quinsac


November 11, 2022

06:00 PM – 07:00 PM

In this in individual celebration, professor Annie-Paule Quinsac will present her not too long ago-published ebook, Divisionismo Italiano. Sguardi e prospettive 1880-1920 (Massetti Rodella Editori, 2022). The work is a revisitation of her seminal thesis “La peinture divisionniste italienne. Origines et premiers développements 1880-1895“, talked about at the Sorbonne in 1968 and revealed in 1972.

Utilizing a transversal tactic, Quinsac analyses the sociopolitical, historic, and ideological context that characterised Italian divisionism, from Segantini’s Avemaria a trasbordo (1886, the first Divisionist get the job done), as a result of the Symbolism of the 1890s, and up to the Futurist revolution, underscoring the at any time-altering interpretations of critics by means of the existing.

Artists viewed as: Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Vittore Grubicy de Dragon, Giovanni Segantini, Jean François Millet, Gaetano Previati, Angelo Morbelli, Plinio Nomellini, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, Emilio Longoni, Attilio Pusterla, Carlo Fornara Ernest Meissonier, Jules Breton, Alfred Roll, Jules Adler Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Luigi Russolo, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini (and some others basically used for the sake of comparison).

Professor Quinsac will be in dialogue with CIMA Fellow Eduardo De Maio.

Copies of the reserve will be readily available for buy.
