Fica para o outro lado do mundo e não se dirá (com a rotina estúpida das agendas) que é imperdível. A exposição abriu no Getty Center em Los Angeles e tem por título: "Captured Emotions: Baroque Painting in Bologna, 1575-1725".
Guido Reni. José e a Mulher de Putifar, c. 1630. Óleo sobre tela
este é um dos momentos (ao longo de mais de 200 anos) e movimentos mais fascinantes da pintura italiana, e também mais influentes do período barroco, com consequências muito para lá dele. A compensar as distâncias, o Getty tem um bom site sobre a exposição, com todas as obras e informação bastante
"This exhibition tells the extraordinary story of a small group of artists who changed the course of art history. In the decades after the deaths of the great Renaissance masters, such as Raphael and Michelangelo, the art of painting was thought to have gone into steep decline. But then, in the late 16th century, the Carracci family of painters from Bologna burst onto the scene with tremendous energy and vitality, raising art to new heights. Their heroic achievement set standards that were to remain authoritative for more than 200 years. Here a selection of key works by the Carracci and several generations of their pupils and followers brings this artistic triumph to life. For them, the visible world became their principal source of inspiration, and nature was their teacher. Painting was about to enter a new era of creativity and lavish patronage, resulting in the glories of the Baroque age.
This exhibition has been co-organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden."
