Picasso, Miró, Dalí @ Palazzo Strozzi in Florence

Pablo PicassoAngry young men: Picasso, Miró, Dalí” is the new exciting show planned at Palazzo Strozzi from March 11 to July 17, 2011. The exhibition’s aim is to depict these three Spanish painters’ anger and youth through 60 pieces of art, like in a flashback taken from a film. The Giovani e cattivi (the Italian for “Angry young men”) exhibit focuses on Picasso’s pre-cubist period, between 1900 and 1905, comparing it with Mirò’s paintings realized between 1915 and 1920 and Dalì’s operas in the following 5 years. The goal is to find the analogies in their art before Mirò and Dalì became Surrealists. Salvador Dali It’s unusual to see their early works exposed in a museum, but it’s crucial to go in depth and understand what was the artistic universe during the first years of the 20th century. In Madrid, during 1901, Picasso used to express his political thoughts in the “Arte Joven” magazine, while Mirò refused the figurative painting because it mirrored the dominant classes’ identity. On the other hand, Dalì was expelled from the Accademia in 1926 because he told his professors they weren’t able to judge him properly. The Palazzo Strozzi’s show traces an innovative imaginary path that has to be uncovered in order to get closer to Mirò, Picasso and Dalì, three of the main artists that played a fundamental role in the history and development of Modern Art.
