“Il Sipario della Vita” – Henri Matisse on display in Sorrento

After the exhibits dedicated to Dali, Picasso, Bacon and Pomodoro, Villa Fiorentino in Sorrento is preparing to welcome a new traveling exhibit dedicated to another great artist, Henri Matisse, one of the 20th century’s most famous artists and a major member of the artistic Fauves movement. The event will take place from June 14 to October 20, 2019.

The theme of the exhibition, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the birth of the French artist, entitled Il Sipario della Vita (The Curtain of Life), is to celebrate the imprint the artist has left on the theatre, on the scenography and on the creations of “effect”. In fact, Matisse was not only a painter but he was also very fond of the theater and the creation of costumes, sets and odalisques.

Villa Fiorentino will display more than 100 works by the artist including paintings, drawings, graphic works, sculptures, home accessories and furniture.

A real event for Sorrento, an event you have just got to see during your romantic getaway at Laqua Charme & Boutique, along the Sorrento Coast.
