The first exhibition dedicated to Alfredo Serri, The Universe Composes Itself in Silence: Alfredo Serri, runs until January 18.
Eighty of the artist’s works are on display, showcasing Serri’s intuitive use of light and shade in his study of still life and human form.
Serri was an active member of the “Modern Painters of Reality” movement, which presented exhibitions to the public gaze for judgement between 1947 and 1949, and published a journal in Florence entitled Arte in 1949. Renowned for his masterful use of illusory techniques, Serri nevertheless took a discreet artistic route, selling artworks to the American market through the limited number of galleries he aligned himself with, and hosting few exhibitions. The Universe Composes Itself in Silence is a tribute to Serri’s quiet study of the intimate sphere, largely produced from his Florentine studio in Via Guelfa. Open to the public free of charge, the exhibition is curated by Stefano De Rosa and hosted by Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze in Florence in collaboration with Galleria Open Art of Prato.
