Amico revisited. Drawings by Amico Aspertini and other Bolognese artists
AMICO ASPERTINI'S DRAWINGS
This selection of works follows an exhibition held in the Edoardo Detti Room of the Department of Prints and Drawings from the 12th of December 2014 to the 8th of February 2015. This exhibition was the result of research into the collection of drawings by Amico Aspertini (Bologna, 1473/75-1552) stored at the museum in Florence. This study led to significant changes in the total number of drawings that we can definitively attribute to the artist, allowing for a fresh interpretation of the painter which highlights the underlying motivations behind his work. Drawings by other contemporary artists from Bologna (both native and adopted) offer a special insight into the context in which Aspertini worked, enabling a comprehensive understanding of his work.
Exhibition curated by Marzia Faietti with Roberta Aliventi, Laura Da Rin Bettina, Michele Grasso, Giorgio Marini, Raimondo Sassi.
