After the last major exhibition devoted to the works of Hercule Florence, Villa Paloma has reopened to present a retrospective of Alfredo Volpi, with the support of the Instituto Alfredo Volpi de Arte Moderna and curated by Cristiano Raimondi.
Alfredo Volpi was born in Lucca, Italy in 1896, and died in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1988. He was a major Brazilian artist who NMNM is proud to present, for the first time in Europe, in a retrospective of 70 works: starting with oils on canvas, country folk or urban landscapes in the 30s and 40s, to the works of the 50s, 60s and 70s with their new colours and painting techniques, the public will discover a fascinating artist.
Despite the success achieved in the last three decades of his life, the story of Volpi is that of a simple and reserved man who dedicated his entire life to his work without ever forgetting where he came from. A man who, every day of his life, until the age of 88, built his own frames on which he himself stretched the canvas to apply himself the meticulously prepared pigments and create the magic of colour.
Like Morandi for the Italians, Volpi the colourist has become a hero and a true legend in Brazil.
"Alfredo Volpi, the poetry of colour" runs until May 20 at Villa Paloma, 56 blvd du Jardin Exotique. Open daily 10 am to 6 pm, admission is €6 but free on Sunday.
