Underlining the commercial and cultural exchange that transpired between the 8th, and 3rd century B.C., this exhibition draws parallels between Egyptian and the Etruscan civilizations, evidenced by the uncovering of ruins during recent excavations at Vulci, one of the most important southern Etruscan settlements.

The tools with which the installations were selected together with the important gallerist Richard Castelli have been created to offer the artists an opportunity to expand their expressive horizons and to capture and reproduce the changes that are taking place in our environment.

Hokusai - Sulle orme del Maestro
Through some 200 works, the exhibition recounts and compares the production of the master Hokusai with that of some of the artists who have followed his footsteps, giving rise to new lines, shapes and color balance. Hokusai (c. 1760 – 1849) was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. He was influenced by Sessh? T?y? and other styles of Chinese painting. Born in Edo (now Tokyo), Hokusai is best known as author of the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, which includes the internationally iconic print, The Great Wave off Kanagawa (shown here). Hokusai created the "Thirty-Six Views" both as a response to a domestic travel boom and as part of a personal obsession with Mount Fuji. It was this series, specifically The Great Wave print and Fine Wind, Clear Morning, that secured Hokusai’s fame both in Japan and overseas. As historian Richard Lane concludes, "Indeed, if there is one work that made Hokusai's name, both in Japan and abroad, it must be this monumental print-series". While Hokusai's work prior to this series is certainly important, it was not until this series that he gained broad recognition. n 1811, at the age of 51, Hokusai changed his name to Taito and entered the period in which he created various etehon, or art manuals. These etehon, beginning in 1812 with Quick Lessons in Simplified Drawing, served as a convenient way to make money and attract more students. Manga (meaning random drawings) included studies in perspective.

Arcimboldo’s career as an artist began at an early age with the execution of designs for stained glass windows at the Cathedral in Milan. He later became known for compositions of imaginative portrait heads created from fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish and books. In 1562, he became the court portraitist to Ferdinand I at the Habsburg court in Vienna and later to Maximillian II and his son Rudolf II of Prague. Some of his more extravagant and avant-garde piece were rediscovered in the early twentieth century by Dadist and Surrealist artists such as Salvador Dalì.

Claude Monet was a key exponent who large extent became the most iconic figure in the Impressionist movement. His paintings are firmly characterized by their depiction of landscape and leisure activities in Paris and its environs as well as the Normandy coast where he was grew up. He was introduced to plein-air painting by Eugéne Bourdin, transforming it into a lifelong ritual. Monet's artworks captured the prevailing themes of plein-air, natural scenes and the many varied atmospheric elements of nature. He succeeded in transforming colors into pure energy, dissolving the rational unit of nature into an indistinct, ephemeral, flawless flow with no confining borders. Monet may well have given freedom to the concept of painting. The exhibition features sixty works from the Musée Marmottan Monet of Paris. They are the same works the artist kept at his home in Giverny which were donated to the museum by his son Michel.

This is the universe reflected by Filippo Palizzi (1818-1899), presented in a selection of about 100 works of art, including paintings and studies, sometimes unfinished, from the collection of the National Gallery. During a visit to Paris in 1844, Palizzi was introduced by his brother to the style of painting developed by the Barbizon School. He returned to Paris in 1863 to concentrate on nature studies from life and in the following decade, his research led to the handling of light both in landscapes painted in plein-air and indoors. He was an advocate for the modernization of academic teaching and, together with Domenico Morelli, founded the Real Istituto di Belle Arti di Napoli in 1878.

Andreas Gursky – Bankok II 

Showing for the first time in Italy, Andreas Gursky’s exhibition of photographs coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Gagosian Rome gallery. Gursky has demonstrated that a photographer can make or construct—rather than simply take—photographs about modern life and produce them on the scale of epic painting. Initially using the computer as a retouching tool, he began exploring its transformative potential, sometimes combining elements of multiple shots of the same subject into an intricate yet seamless whole, at other timesm barely altering the image at all. Andreas Gursky was born in  Liepzig Germany in 1955. He lives and works in Dusseldorf. His work is in the collections of major museums worldwide.

Part 1
Lulù Nuti, Baldassarre Ruspoli, Simone Pappalardo and Delfina Scarpa, have contributed to this holiday event, titled "Rhythmic Decomposition," the first work in a series of open compositions and sonorous performances originating from the encounter between the artist and physicist José Angelino and the electro-acoustic composer Simone Pappalardo. These random compositions lead us each on a journey within the physical rules that govern the individual instrumental families, using the techniques of timbric emission. In this piece, the artists start from a series of percussive objects / instruments - boxes of cookies and different acoustic drums. The instruments are activated through mpulse systems and feedback signals. Thus, a uniform organized sound flow is reconstructed, within which are inserted the notes by saxaphonist Simone Alessandrini, a special guest musician.
For the occasion, a new edition of Simone Pappalardo's LUR sound opera will be on display.
Visual artist Delfina Scarpa will continue her series of spontaneous and natural sketches of colouful drawings of suspended images.

Matvey Levenstein – New Paintings
Levenstein's third exhibition at this gallery focuses on landscape and still lifes painted in and around his studio on the northern shores of Long Island. His calm and meditative paintings of intimate and familiar subjects combine exceptional technical skills with a profound knowledge of traditional oil painting techniques. These images, some of which take years to complete, look towards precedents like Chardin and Morandi in their use of everyday objects or landscapes as a metaphor for eternal human concerns.
Levenstein was born in Moscow, and after a brief period in Rome and Vienna, settled in the USA, where he studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and at Yale University School of Art.
