32nd BIAF - INTERNATIONAL BIENNIAL OF FLORENCE ANTIQUES

32nd INTERNATIONAL BIENNIAL OF FLORENCE ANTIQUES

From September 24th to October 2nd 2022 Galleria Enrico will be present at the Florence Biennale, Stand n. 69.
Florence welcomes the excellence of art and antiques gathered in Palazzo Corsini on the Lungarno. "A museum for sale", defines it Fabrizio Moretti, Secretary General of the International Biennial of Antiques in his fourth direction.
75 international galleries offer no less than 4,500 works of various types, all carefully screened by the authoritative Vetting; the scientific commission that counts experts from every artistic sector and allows the buyer to buy safely.
The official inauguration will be held on Saturday 24 September at 10.30 in the Salone dei Cinquecento in the presence of the Mayor Dario Nardella and the city authorities and will be preceded by three days of previews dedicated to collectors and museum directors and the press and by a long-awaited gala dinner in "black tie". The fireworks will illuminate the Arno and Palazzo Corsini on 22 September from 11.00 pm to the rhythm of music.
The 32nd edition marks the Biennale's 63 years of activity, a milestone that the organizers wanted to celebrate by reconfirming the Florence Art Week, a rich program of events (inauguration on September 24) all within easy reach of a walk in the heart of Florence. Involved many galleries of the city that offer exhibitions open also in the evening, public museums and private collections, 30 boutiques in the historic center that will welcome customers in a special way.
The BIAF is an integral part of the history of collecting in Italy after the Second World War (1959). There are many antique dealers who have linked their professional history to the Biennale and just as many are the collections that have been formed following purchases made between the stands of the fair.
The cultural program of the BIAF, from 26 to 30 September, will host numerous book presentations and conferences related to history and the art market in the Throne Room.
For the second consecutive year, a new recognition is added to the most beautiful historical awards for Painting and Sculpture on display: the "Award for decorative or design arts" thanks to the sponsorship of Ronald S. Lauder, who will assign it during the Biennale, on a trio of works recommended by a special jury. The amount of Euro 25,000 will allow the restoration of some decorative works of art belonging to the public cultural heritage. It is the Biennale's explicit desire, underlines the Secretary General Fabrizio Moretti, "to promote and support the restoration of those works that would hardly find sponsorship because they are less famous
Furthermore, on Wednesday 28 September at 4.00 pm the "Lorenzo d’oro", created by Maestro Marcello Guasti (Florence 1924 - Bagno a Ripoli 2019) will be delivered in the Throne Room of Palazzo Corsini.
The installations of Palazzo Corsini will be curated for the third time by designer Matteo Corvino.
For the first time, an exhibition dedicated to ancient art looks with interest at new technologies, opening up to the metaverse, Neuroesthetics and NFTs. In partnership with EY Italia, a three-dimensional virtual exhibition will be proposed where users will be able to interact and touch the 14 awarded works from 2007 to 2019.

FROM SACCOROTTI TO SIROTTI - Flowery Liguria

FROM SACCOROTTI TO SIROTTI - Flowery Liguria

With the exhibition From Saccorotti to Sirotti. Liguria in bloom, which will be held in the headquarters of Via Garibaldi 29r in Genoa, Enrico Gallerie d'Arte pays homage to Euroflora and to some protagonists of twentieth-century floral painting in Liguria and beyond. Among the Ligurians there is Oscar Saccorotti (1898-1986), a Roman painter, engraver and decorator from Genoa by adoption, present here with three paintings that cover thirty years of activity, from the experience of the twentieth century to a lyrical naturalistic vision. The flowers of Liguria and the landscape of that land find an intimate adhesion, later, in the painting of Raimondo Sirotti (1934-2017), one of the protagonists of contemporary Italian painting, consecrated to the famous exhibition Abstraction in Italy 1930- 1980 held at the Estorick Collection in London in 2012. With a step back we enter the floral universe of Galileo Chini (1873-1956), a Florentine painter in contact with the Tuscans who stayed in Liguria, such as Plinio Nomellini. A multifaceted artist, as well as a ceramic painter, illustrator, decorator and set designer, the floral theme is central in his repertoire, first absorbed through the liberty experience, which he introduced in Italy, then oriented towards a new feeling of nature after a trip to Siam , today's Thailand, between 1911 and 1913. Our floral journey delves into the work of some protagonists of Ligurian painting of the early twentieth century. Pietro Gaudenzi (1880-1955), Genoese by birth but Milanese and Roman by adoption, is present with two extraordinary canvases of flowers with a dazzling palette vibrated by chromatic thicknesses that emulate bas-relief, between neo-seventeenth-century or left-handed references, for the chiaroscuro resentful and dark background, and the thrill of a painting with a classical and realist layout. The Venetian Lino Perissinotti (1897-1967), who arrived in Lavagna in the thirties and then settled in Chiavari, declines the still life of flowers in delicate tones and in a solid structure, where space and geometric order are almost more predominant than to the central and collected bouquet of flowers, according to an archaizing sensitivity in the twentieth century climate. Aurelio Craffonara (1875-1945), tireless traveler and superb watercolorist, takes us back to the en plein air atmospheres hit by the light that he was able to masterfully capture in the white of the sheet, punctuated by the precise notes of color of a flowery pergola or the vegetation of a luxuriant mediterranean garden. Finally, the naturalistic declinations of Sexto Canegallo (1892-1966) are of a completely different kind, present here with an oil and two pastels that demonstrate his original synthesis, between divisionism and symbolism, through a redundancy of lines and colors - parallel , sinuous and with muted tones - which decipher the natural elements, water, trees, grass, in subjective sensations, a sort of luminous and dynamic inner abstraction. Location of the exhibition: Enrico Art Galleries Via Garibaldi, 29 R - Genoa. Dates: from 28 April to 7 May 2022. Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 10.30 - 13.00, 14.30 - 19.00.

ANTIQUA - ANTIQUE ART MARKET EXHIBITION - XXXI EDITION

ANTIQUA - ANTIQUE ART MARKET EXHIBITION - XXXI EDITION

From 5 to 13 February 2022 the Enrico Art Gallery of Milan-Genoa will participate in the XXXI Edition of Antiqua, Genoa, Magazzini del Cotone with an important selection of eighty works of Italian painting of the 19th and 20th centuries, unpublished to the general public , which collects masterpieces of the main national pictorial realities, in particular Ligurian, Tuscan, Lombard, Piedmontese and Venetian.
It starts with the Macchiaioli with a lyrical interpretation of the Livorno coast by Giovanni Fattori, the head of the school, a synthetic tablet with few and warm tones, and then moves on to Telemaco Signorini, the most impressionist among the Tuscans, and Silvestro Lega, the most lyrical , respectively with a painting from Settignano and a glimpse of Bath, England, and a beautiful portrait of a boy in profile. Finally, Ludovico Tommasi, a pupil of Lega, with a turn of the century work, a harvest scene bathed in light and devoid of shadows, which already reveals an absorption of the Divisionist novelties.
We then move on to Piedmontese painting with Lorenzo Delleani, with a dense and dazzling effect, and Enrico Reycend, with two extraordinary views of the port of Genoa and the port of Savona with French-like vibrations held back by a marked chiaroscuro.
Giovanni Boldini, the most famous of the Italian peintres in Paris, takes us to the international scene with a watercolor made en plein air along the Seine. He brings us back to the atmospheres
Alberto Pasini, a highly imaginative Parmesan painter with a rich and bright chromatism, while the Florentine Galileo Chini gives us delicate floral atmospheres with an oil of the 1920s of exquisite beauty for chromatic intonation and pictorial vibration.
The Lombard school is represented by Pompeo Mariani and Giorgio Belloni, both Ligurians by adoption, and by their vivid impressions of the Ligurian Sea, turbulent and French-flavored, those of the former, and rich in shiny and contrasting mixtures, those of the latter.
The Ligurian school is widely represented by the best interpreters of the 1800s and 1900s. They range from the canvases of Ernesto Rayper and Serafino De Avendaño, founders of the modern school of landscape, with their remote views steeped in mystery and lyricism, to the splendid coastal views of the protagonists of realism of the second half of the 19th century, Angelo Costa, Andrea Figari and Giuseppe Sacheri, the latter present with a suggestive full moon over the sea of ??monumental dimensions.
With Antonio Varni and Giovanni Battista Torriglia, on the other hand, we enter the popular dimension of genre painting, with two suggestive canvases depicting, the first, a young sailor hoisting the flag of the ship, not devoid of symbolism (hence the dialectal title Ghe voeu a comeback), the second, a carpenter at work in an interior scene from which a Flemish-inspired light enters.
The new pointillist experience in Liguria opens with Plinio Nomellini and Gaetano Previati, founders and theorists of the movement, with a late canvas of the first, completed on the Island of Elba, imbued with a vivid and vibrant symbolism and chromatism, and a great vase of flowers of the second, whose chromatic decomposition into pictorial filaments anticipates futurism.
Rubaldo Merello, a solitary and visionary painter, transfigures the pictorial motif, the dizzying coast of San Fruttuoso, into a material hallucinated by the sun and inflamed by unnatural and complementary colors, while in the more orthodox divisionism of Giuseppe Cominetti, present here with two small oils of figure, the mythological and symbolist suggestions of the Parisian years remain.

Location of the exhibition: Genoa, Porto Antico, Magazzini del Cotone
Duration: From 05 February to 13 February 2022
Hours: Weekdays 14 - 20 - Holidays and pre-holidays 10 - 20

RUBALDO MERELLO AND PAINTING IN LIGURIA BETWEEN '800 AND '900

RUBALDO MERELLO AND PAINTING IN LIGURIA BETWEEN '800 AND '900

How many colors does blue have? How much light is hidden under the pink grass in the morning of a day that promises to become happy? Liguria is a palette. The sea wind brings purple foliage into the twisted pines, a reminder of all the suns the sea has swallowed. Liguria is memory and desire that reverberates the very true light of pains and joys that a thousand masters could not paint. Liguria is a rough canvas where everything that has existed since the beginning of time can always take new forms. Liguria is an unlikely and incredible painting, painted with the salty patina of its views and framed in the gold of the sun, which is amazed every day.
This second volume of the Nineteenth Century Quaderni is dedicated to Ligurian painting and opens with an extraordinary group of ten Divisionist paintings by Rubaldo Merello, a solitary and visionary painter, obsessed with a single subject, the Promontory of Portofino, transfigured into a material hallucinated by the sun and inflamed by dominant colors, crepuscular pinks and electric blues, unlikely yet so real, and struck by restless red-violet swashes like the two extraordinary canvases exhibited by Aberto Grubicy in the Salon des Peintres Divisionnistes Italiens in Paris in 1907, here exceptionally represented to the public.
Again, it is the very personal pointillism of Giuseppe Cominetti and Domenico Guerello that strikes the eyes for the intensity of light and color, through the filamentous and vivid painting of the former, which condenses the mythological and symbolist suggestions of the Parisian years, and the geometric and mental synthesis of the second, in a canvas with an unusual square cut, played on the strong backlight between the branches of a tree and the aerial view on which it stands out hieratic, permeated with a diaphanous and almost metaphysical violet light.
On another register, of monumental dimensions, the divisionism of Antonio Discovolo and Sexto Canegallo moves. The large canvas of the first is a masterpiece that recalls Seraut for the chromatic light, the immobile and classic atmosphere, and the clarity and truth with which rural life is recreated. The two canvases by the Sestrese painter, on the other hand, for the hermetic symbolism and the restless tension of the figures wrapped in ascending and curvilinear coils of futurist inspiration, still disconcert us today as they disconcerted the Parisian public in 1925.
Liguria is the most mysterious and secret in the paintings of Ernesto Rayper and Serafino De Avendaño, founders of the modern landscape school of the mid-nineteenth century. Their en plein air views of the hinterland, with their remote and hidden views, are dominated by almost monochrome silvery greens and grays, from which their famous movement takes its name, and by an innovative lyrical instinct.
The trip to Liguria continues with the splendid coastal views of the protagonists of the realism of the second half of the nineteenth century. They range from the light that bathes the colors in a vibrant tonal synthesis by Angelo Costa, with the sun hitting the road along the coast of Santa Margherita Ligure, to the disruptive presence of the sea, its almost tangible and sound waves in the audacious impressionist visions of Andrea Figari and Giuseppe Sacheri, up to the poetically synthetic painting of Lazzaro Luxardo, who maintains the bright color of Divisionism, and to the more terrestrial one of the Lombard Pompeo Mariani, perhaps the most French of those who looked at Liguria, in a canvas where the only The line that separates the sky from the sea is the horizon teeming with sails, propped up by Venetian colors, of the port of Genoa.
Location of the exhibition: Enrico Gallerie d'Arte, Via Garibaldi 29R, Genoa
Duration: From 14 October 2021 to 18 December 2021
Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 10.30 - 13 / 14.30 - 19.00

ANIMA MUNDI. The sentiment of color 1850 - 1950

ANIMA MUNDI. The sentiment of color 1850 - 1950

The exhibition, which the Mario Rimoldi Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of the Regole d'Ampezzo proposes for the winter season, is an evocative path within which four different themes unfold that look at the Landscape, at the Portrait in the scenes of everyday life, at Work of man, and ends with a tribute to four female figures of the last century: Emma Ciardi; Rosetta Fontanarosa; Lina Rosso and Alis Levi.
In this context, 80 paintings from important private collections, from Banking Foundations and a selection of works from the prestigious Mario Rimoldi collection will be exhibited.
The winking gaze of Giovanni Boldini's mysterious Madame X is the small snapshot of a sensual and secret scene that takes us inside a fascinating exhibition: a journey through the sentiment of color in Italian and Venetian painting between the 19th and 20th centuries.
From the 'divine' and worldly women immortalized by the parisien d’Italie, the exhibition then delves into the enterprise of narrating the thousand faces of the landscape with a substantial core of works by the innovators of nineteenth-century Venetian painting: Guglielmo Ciardi; Ettore Tito; Giacomo Favretto; Alessandro Milesi and Luigi Nono. A landscape that starts from the enchanting views of the 'sensual' Venice to reach the spirit of the mountain that opens up to large spaces, the vastness of the skies, the solemnity of a view that is regenerated in the serenity and quiet of the places of affection.
The work and fatigue of man is another of the themes that the exhibition addresses with spectacular paintings from the twentieth century including: La zolfara, by Renato Guttuso; Charcoal unloaders by Armando Pizzinato and Women at the loom, by Fortunato Depero that the artist inserts in that plastic theater in which the subject is transformed into an automaton and a mannequin of himself.
A particular section of the exhibition is dedicated to four women who have been able to renew the pictorial language with a strong feminine sensitivity: Emma Ciardi, Lina Rosso, Rosetta Fontanarosa and Alis Levi, refined and cultured English painter, who chooses Cortina d'Ampezzo as the place of soul and remains the protagonist of an intellectual milieu between Venice and the Ampezzo city. All these works are exhibited in dialogue with the Mario Rimoldi collection, which presents on the second floor of the Museum a selection of the paintings chosen for an in-depth study on the themes of the exhibition.
A particular section will be dedicated to the evocative snow-covered landscapes, portrayed by the authors in different places, including: Venice, Milan and of course Cortina. The exhibition also features a small section dedicated to four contemporary artists who deal with the themes of the exhibition, the section called: Contemporary Suggestions presents the works of: Andrés David Carrara, Leonardo D’Este, Serena Nono, Beppe Saretta. On the second floor of the Museum there is a wide selection of works from the prestigious Mario Rimoldi collection in line with the themes and languages ??presented by the Anima Mundi exhibition, as well as some works by contemporary authors, also in close dialogue with it: Paolo Barozzi , Franca Coppadoro, Gianfranco Mantovani Orsetti, Mario Sollazzo.
Location of the exhibition: Mario Rimoldi Museum in Cortina d'Ampezzo. Duration: 6 December 2019 - 02 February 2020. Hours: 10 - 12.30 / 15.30 - 19.30
