GALLERIA DE MARTIIS
GALLERIA DE MARTIIS
The works exhibited in the Galleria Famiglia De Martiisat Palazzo de Nordis cover the twentieth century through both abstract and figurative styles, with some small, but significant, examples of Impressionism.
There are two fine pastels by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, but the Collection takes us back to Paris – one hundred years later – with a fitting tribute to Édouard Pignon, a leading exponent of La Nouvelle École de Paris, of whom there are seven works
Another fine section of the Collection is linked to Informal language with some significant names: Karel Appel; Victor Vasarely; Alfred Kornberger; Sebastián Matta; Graham Sutherland
The presence of Italian artists in the Collection is also important, starting with two extraordinary paintings by Afro Basaldella from Friuli, and continuing with Virgilio Guidi, Mario Sironi, Emilio Vedova; three important twentieth-century artists close the Italian section with works by Tancredi Parmeggiani, Giuseppe Santomaso and Zoran Mušič
The collector has dedicated particular attention to two contemporary artists: Mario Di Iorio fro, Friuli and the Austrian Annemarie Dreibholz-Humele. Emblematic also in terms of location, the two artists coincide with the geographical demarcation line in which the collector’s daily life takes place: Friuli as the territory of origin and Vienna, the place of their cultural training and residence.
Lo sguardo attento del collezionista si allarga poi verso la figura di Pravoslav Kotík, un artista della Repubblica Ceca fortemente rappresentativo
Finally, the collector’s most recent passion for some of the paintings attributable to the avant-garde of the Eastern countries of the early twentieth century: authors unknown to the general public and therefore still to be studied in greater depth, for example, Vasily Ermilov, Aleksej Georgievič Jawlensky, Ljubov’ Sergeyevna Popova, Ol’ga Vladimirovna Rozanova, Pravoslav Kotik, Nadežda Andreevna Udal’cova, Aleksandr Michajlovič Rodčenko and many more
