Neo Rauch is considered to be the leading exponent of East German painting following the fall of the Berlin Wall

Monographic exhibitions of his work have been hosted at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, in Montreal and at the Albertina in Vienna but this, his first ever show in Italy, will be showcasing numerous paintings specially created by Rauch for the Andito degli Angiolini in the Pitti Palace. This 19th century space complements to perfection Rauch's poetic and often enigmatic visions, challenging the observer, dipping into figurative sources and German Romanticism and betraying the influence of Socialist Realism and of Surrealism in his penetrating exploration of the human condition.

The exhibition is curated by Max Seidel and Serena Calamai.
