Special guided tour at the Segantini Museum


Special guided tour at the Segantini Museum

Dr. Mirella Carbone, artistic director of the Segantini Museum, will guide you through the special exhibition "Giovanni Segantini as Master of Portraiture".

Giovanni Segantini became famous during his lifetime as a landscape painter. However, he himself considered another pictorial genre to be the noblest, namely the portrait, as it "has as its aim the exploration of the human face". With a high-quality selection of portraits (and self-portraits) from international collections, the summer exhibition at the Segantini Museum (June 1 to Oct. 20, 2021) illuminates for the first time this unjustly lesser-known aspect of Segantini´s work.
The 16 paintings and 6 graphic works on display span his entire artistic career from his Milan beginnings (1880) to his early death in the Upper Engadine (1899). Highlights of the show include intimate portraits such as that of his companion Bice from 1890, as well as representative portraits such as those of the siblings Vittore and Leopoldina Grubicy, which are among the finest examples of Segantini´s talent as a "researcher of the human face".
