Guttuso exhibition in Florence

March 31, 2014

The Guttuso exhibition in Florence is now impending. In fact, we are just approaching to the inauguration of the project dedicated to the great Sicilian painter in calendar at the Simboli Art Gallery from 5th April to 31st May 2014. A Personal Review long-awaited and interesting, entitled “Timeless Painting”, which arrives in the city after the great success in Reggio Emilia and that will be inaugurated on Saturday, 5th April at 17:30. The Guttuso exhibition in Florence can be visited free of charge from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 to 13:00 and from 15:00 to 20:00. It is divided into two major sections, arranged in rotation in the spaces of the Gallery in via San Giuseppe, 6 in Florence. “Guttuso, the elegance of the dream” is based on historical works, realized until the ‘60. “Guttuso and the colour” instead, presents works created in the second part of the life and career of the artist from Bagheria, dating back to the ‘70 and ‘80, where it is clear the extraordinary ability that the teacher drew from the use of colour.
