Vermeer&Kandinski in Rimini

Sara Mantovani January 25, 2012
From Vermeer to Kandinsky, this great exhibition shows masterpieces from all over the world until 3 June 2012, in the beautiful venue of  Castel Sismondo in Rimini .

After the two previous great exhibitions “From Rembrandt to Gaugin and Picasso: the enchant of painting in Rimini” and “Paris. The wonderful years” together with “Caravaggio and other painters of the 17th century”, the Malatestian fortress will host another important exhibition “From Vermeer to Kadinsky”. Thanks to the involvement of many museums in the world, the exhibition has been gathering the best works of the most significant period from each nation (from mid-15th to 20th century). It has been conceived to be a great art history lesson even to those who haven’t a thorough knowledge of art.

The exhibition aims to highlight the centuries of greatest splendor of each of the main countries in art history. And within each century, especially for Italy, the most representative region has been chosen for each specific period. For example, the 18th-century in Italy will be represented by Venetian paintings from Canaletto to Guardi, Tiepolo and Bellotto. Tuscany and the Veneto will highlight the 16th century, while artistic works inspired by Caravaggio have been chosen for the 17th century. In this way the exhibition will offer a large view of important masterpieces by some of the main artists in the last five centuries in Europe and in America.
