The Palazzo Strozzi in Florence dedicates an exhibition to the pioneers of modern art in Spain: Picasso, Miro and Dali, who played an important role not only in the birth of the avant-garde of their native country, and also worldwide.
Dedicated to the early work of teachers who have had a decisive role in the beginnings of modern art, the exhibition examines the period of pre-Cubist Picasso
with its proceedings prior to 1907, while the works of Miró
made ??between 1915 and 1920 are presented in relation to those of Dalí
in the five years 1920-1925 to highlight the stylistic differences and relations that characterize the period before accession of the two artists to the poetics of surrealism.
The exhibition Picasso, Miró, Dalí. Young and angry: the birth of modernity curated by Eugenio Carmona and Christoph Vitali, has more than sixty works of the early work of Picasso, Miro and Dali and over one hundred sketches Picasso, from the most important museums in Spain, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and private collections.
Grown in Catalonia, the three artists reached fame in France, where the first two chose to live and build their careers, while Dalí decided to remain in Spain. The exhibition is structured like a film made ??up of flashbacks that make reference to a series of meetings, traveling back to tie the threads of a story: it begins with a visit to Dali and Picasso (1926), then trace the birth of modernity through the Dalí Miró responses, highlights the intersection between Miro and Picasso (1917) and ending before the arrival of the young Picasso in Paris in 1900, the beginning of the new century.
In this exhibition for the first time outside Spain Picasso‘s notebook Cahier 7, 1907, which brings together the very first sketches for his revolutionary masterpiece Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, which have presented very strong demands for Dalí and Miró, and in general point departure for the birth of the language of modern art.
