From Vermeer to Kandinsky: masterpieces from all over the world


Castel Sismondo will host a great exhibition presenting the history of art by works from the mid-15th to the 20th century.
Thanks to the involvement of many museums in the world, the exhibition has been gathering the best works of the most significant period from each nation.
It has been conceived to be a great art history lesson even to those who haven't a thorough knowledge of art.
The exhibition aims to highlight the centuries of greatest splendor of each of the main countries in art history. And within each century, especially for Italy, the most representative region has been chosen for each specific period. For example, the 18th-century in Italy will be represented by Venetian paintings from Canaletto to Guardi, Tiepolo and Bellotto. Tuscany and the Veneto will highlight the 16th century, while artistic works inspired by Caravaggio have been chosen for the 17th century. In this way the exhibition will offer a large view of important masterpieces by some of the main artists in the last five centuries in Europe and in America.
The works on show are about eighty and come from thirty of the best museums in the world. Among the names of the artists you will find Raffaello, Mantegna, Tiziano, Velasquez, Canaletto, Goya, Poussin, Monet, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, Kandinsky, Picasso.
