A new exhibition featuring art by women from storage to spotlight. ‘Women Artists. Florence 1900-50’, showcases two artists Leonetta Cecchi Pieraccini and Fillide Levasti Giorgi.
Best known for her portraiture of the well-known literati who frequented her salon, Cecchi was praised during her time for ‘painting with the vigor of a man’ whilst Levasti’s whimsical domestic scenes are valued today for being slice-of-life paintings that zero in on the female perspective during the interwar period. Trained by Giovanni Fattori, both women carved out a ‘space of their own’ in a Europe torn by war, where attitudes toward professional women were undergoing huge transformation. Exhibition goers will catch a glimpse of Morisa Mori’s Futurism and Evelyn Scarampi’s essential figurative sculpture or Flavia Arlotta’s jewel-like still life canvases.
In addition to this private tour, participants will have the opportunity to have lunch together with the Director of AWA, Dr. Linda Falcone at Relais Santa Croce.
