Aldo Salvadori. Intimate Portrait of a Woman's Soul

Exhibition date & place
Godziny otwarcia:
It is our pleasure to present an exhibition of Aldo Salvadori’s selected works. Our exhibition is predominantly focused on portraits and nudes. Many of the exhibited works were displayed in two prominent Italian art institutions: Palazzo Strozzi in Florence (1979) and Palazzo della Permanente in Milan (1991).
Aldo Salvadori was born in Milan, but had a Tuscan ancestry. Salvadori began his artistic studies in the Istituto d’Arte in Florence. He deepened his knowledge about Renaissance art while visiting Gallerie degli Uffizi and by copying old masters’ works. Salvadori’s trip to Paris in 1926 was a turning point in his artistic career. At that time, Paris was the center of artistic turmoil and the cradle of avant-garde painting. There, he was mainly inspired by the art of the Impressionists – his works from that time feature a subtle, fair color palette, while the sketchiness of his compositions brings into mind August Renoir’s and Edgar Degas’s art.
Since 1944, for over twenty years, Salvadori was a professor at the prestigious Accademia di Brera, teaching the nude painting. He left the academy in 1968 to show solidarity with the protesting students and moved to Bergamo. That was a new period of his artistic journey. For over thirty years, Salvadori worked away from the busy Italian metropolis. During that time he painted poetic portraits of pensive and mysterious women who appear lost in thought and absent-minded. The exhibition’s focus was placed on this artistic period of Aldo Salvadori.
From 1930 to 1956, Salvadori regularly exhibited his works at the Venice Biennale. His paintings were also shown at the individual exhibition in Palazzo Strozzi in Florence (1979) and in Palazzo della Permanente in Milan (1991), as well as at the numerous exhibitions in the company of the acclaimed artists such as: Giorgio de Chirico, Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard.
