In this challenging time, Italian art in London doesn’t stop. Galleries and museums are showcasing on line their exhibitions and artworks from Italian artists. It is an inspiring, virtual way to continue to enjoy art while we stay home.
The Estorick Collection in London is the only museum in Britain devoted to modern Italian art, bringing together some of the finest and most important works created by Italian artists during the first half of the twentieth century.
The Collection opened in 1998 and is now known internationally for its core of Futurist works and figurative art and sculpture.
Currently we can enjoy their new exhibition on Tullio Crali (1910-2000), a futurist artist whose work is associated with the genre of ‘aereopainting’.
The exhibition, drawn from the collection of the artist’s family, explores the phases of his long career spanning through a dynamic and turbulent century. For Tullio Crali, Futurism was not only a school of painting but an attitude to life itself and a philosophy for which he experienced throughout all his life an intense affinity.
His work included experimental poetry, mixed-media compositions, iconic aereopoaintings, cosmos imagery, and much more.
