The visit to the exhibition “Divine Beauty from Van Goh to Chagall and Fontana” presents this exceptional show dedicated to the relationship between art and religion through over one hundred works, dating from the 19th to the 20th century. Among the artists on display at Palazzo Strozzi the visitor can admire the mastepieces by Gaetano Previati, Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, Henri Matisse. The tour examines the trends in modern religious art, between revisions and conflicts.
From Divisionism and Symbolism in the mid nineteenth century to the modern art movements of the Twentieth Century, the exhibition claims to bring to Florence works such as Vincent Van Gogh’s Pietà from the Vatican Museums and Marc Chagall’s White Crucifixion from the Art Institute of Chicago.
The show was organized thanks to the joint venure between Fondazione palazzo Strozzi, the Archdiocese of Florence and the Vatican Museums and is part of the programma held for the Fifth National Bishops Conference, which Pope Francis will also attend in Novemeber.
