Against Mussolini Art and the Fall of a Dictator
Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art
22 September – 19 December 2010
Whilst several major exhibitions have explored the propaganda imagery of Fascist Italy, art produced by those opposed to Mussolini and his regime has received surprisingly little attention in recent years. Against Mussolini brings together works produced in Italy and abroad throughout the Fascist era (1922-43), but focuses particularly on the period immediately after the dictator’s fall from power following Italy’s disastrous Second World War campaign.
15 September 2010 – 8 January 2011

The artist’s distinctive use of light and sound permeates the gallery, resulting in a compelling, multi-sensory experience composed of a range… of different objects, images, forms and surfaces.

He invented new types of painting: allegorical pictures, distinguished by a haunting and melancholy poetry; fanciful portraits of romantic and enigmatic figures; macabre and horrific subjects; philosophical subjects, which bring into painting some of the major philosophical and scientific concerns of his age.
