Exhibition "Piero della Francesca. Exploring a legend"
Forlì, from 13 February to 26 June
The complex interaction of art and criticism, creative output and scholarship, is the aim of Piero della Francesca. From the success during his life – Luca Pacioli defined him “the king of painting” till being forgotten and newly discovered.
Some paintings by Piero, carefully selected to mark the evolving stages of that rediscovery, will therefore form the core of the exhibition. These will be accompanied by works by other great Renaissance artists, clarifying how Piero acquired his language and the defining role in the evolution of modern art assigned to him by recent scholarship.
Intesa Sanpaolo and Cassa dei Risparmi di Forlì e della Romagna are Main Sponsor of the iniziative.
