Novecento Museum in Milan
You can’t ignore it.
On the same side of Piazza Duomo as Palazzo Reale, it shines from afar and as gradually one comes closer, curiosity increases.
Thursday evening, like many others.
I lose myself charmed looking around as I climb up slowly to the museum.
Despite the people, I enjoy the view from the transparent spiral glass walls that leads to the exhibition rooms
On the left, as a symbolic passage from Ottocento to Novecento, a dark wall with “Il Quarto Stato”, the impressive Masterpiece of Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo.
The first room, full of people, but almost dizzying in front of a wall with a Picasso’s “Femme nue” blue lighted but in all respects similar, as position and form with “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon”. Painted in 1907, as the catalog says, more or less as “Les Demoiselles”
Next to it, another Picasso’s Masterpiece from the years ’12-’14, the cubist “La bouteille de Bass”. This first room is mainly dedicated to non Italian except Modigliani, or maybe they are all artists working in Paris at the beginning of Novecento.
Interesting to observe that the period produced many different artistic movements.
Paintings so different in style and technique as Modigliani’s Paul Guillaume Portrait with his asymmetrc eyes or a cubist Braque painting are from the same 1912.
Year that have the creation of “Elasticità”, Boccioni’s painting in the next room.
Futurist Masterpiece, it gathers in its forms the force of movement which is the essence of Futurism
