De Nittis. Pittore della vita moderna
From 24 February to 30 June 2024, Milan's Palazzo Reale hosts a monographic DE NITTIS exhibition. Painter of Modern Life celebrates the talent of Giuseppe De Nittis, one of the greatest figures of nineteenth-century European painting. The exhibition presents around 90 paintings, including oils and pastels, drawn from major public and private collections, Italian and foreign, including the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Reims and Dunkirk, and the Uffizi of Florence.
The exhibition enhances the international stature of an artist who, together with Boldini, was one of the greatest Italian painters in Paris, comparable with Manet, Degas and the Impressionists, who, despite their different pictorial language, shared the same aspiration, to revolutionise the very idea of painting.
The French painters and De Nittis addressed the same themes, such as landscapes, portraits and scenes of modern life that the painter encountered on the streets of the two European cities he frequented in those years, Paris and London, in his extraordinary en plein air painting. The exhibition itinerary covers a period of twenty years, from 1864 to 1884, and takes us on a quite extraordinary pictorial adventure, one which ended prematurely with the artist's death at just 38 years of age.
