Cabianca exhibition: the Macchiaioli movement

The exhibition "Vincenzo Cabianca, the Macchiaioli movement" showcases about 100 works by Cabianca as well as approximately 25 paintings by other macchiaioli artists among which are Telemaco Signorini, Giovanni Fattori, Silvestro Lega, Cristiano Banti, and Nino Costa.
The exhibition in Florence includes the large painting of I novellieri fiorentini (Florentine Storytellers) from Palazzo Pitti, the Scena medievale (Medieval Scene) and Le monachine in riva al mare (Nuns on the Seashore) both from the Municipal Gallery of Modern Art in Milan, the very beautiful paintings Al sole (In the Sun) and L’acquaiola (The Water-carrier) from private collections and works by other macchiaioli masters such as the painting Giovani pescatori (Young Fishermen) by Telemaco Signorini, and Riunione di contadine (Group of Countrywomen) by Cristiano Banti.

We can admire famous paintings such as the Abbandonata (Deserted Wife) and unknown ones like Vendemmia in Toscana (Grape Harvest in Tuscany), evidence of the years of daring experimentations with the “macchia” technique (macchia in Italian means a spot of colour) which Cabianca carried out with Banti and Signorini in Liguria and in the Tuscan countryside between 1859 and 1862, culminating in the famous masterpiece Il mattino (Morning) and in Marmi a Carrara Marina (Marble Blocks in Carrara Marina) which had not been exhibited for almost a century.

The fellowship with his macchiaioli friends in the Florentine countryside around Piagentina and in the seascapes of Castiglioncello and Versilia, are witnessed by famous masterpieces such as Spiaggia a Viareggio (Beach in Viareggio) and Un bagno fra gli scogli (Bathers on the Rocks). The splendid 1862 Ritorno dai campi (Back from the Fields), which had not been exhibited for decades, is the painting around which views of Tuscan countryside, either never displayed before or not seen for a long time, rotate.
