Palazzo Strozzi is presenting the exhibition Divine Beauty from Van Gogh to Chagall and Fontana which will run from Sept. 24 to Jan. 24, with Pope Francis expected to attend the conference that will held in Florence from Nov. 9 to 13.
The show, which explores the relationship between art and religion from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century, includes over 100 works by famous Italian and international artists including Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse. The exhibit includes celebrated works such as Jean-François Millet’s Angelus, on exceptional loan from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, Vincent van Gogh’s Pietà from the Vatican Museums, and more.
The exhibition ranges from Realism to Divisionism to Expressionism. Its objective is to analyze a century of modern religious art and to highlight different interpretations of the relationship between art and religion. Divine Beauty will provide visitors the opportunity to compare famous works of art in a new and different light.
The idea for the exhibit came from a joint venture between the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, the former Soprintendenza Speciale per il Patrimonio Storico, Artistico ed Etnoantropologico e per il Polo Museale della città di Firenze, the Archdiocese of Florence and the Vatican Museums.
