Tancredi. A Retrospective
12 November 2016 - 13 March 2017
With over ninety works, this much-awaited retrospective marks the return to Venice of Tancredi Parmeggiani (Feltre 1927–Rome 1964), among the most original and prolific Italian painters of the second half of the twentieth century. With a remarkable selection of paintings, the exhibition re-creates, step by step in intimate galleries, between creative fury and lyrical expressionism, the brief but meteoric trajectory of this great postwar painter.

This focused exhibition brings together exquisite Surrealist paintings by the Danish artist Rita Kernn-Larsen, to this day too little known outside Denmark. This will be the first important presentation of Kernn-Larsen’s Surrealist period outside of her native Scandinavia since her one-woman exhibition organized by Peggy Guggenheim in her gallery at Guggenheim Jeune, in 1938.
