Carl Spitzerg - Hilarious! Hilarious?

By Prof. Francesco Carelli

Some 130 years after the death of the “most popular German painter”, the Leopold Museum is presenting the first exhibition on the artist Carl Spitzweg (1808–1885), whose oeuvre is commonly seen as closely allied to the Biedermeier period and the definitions of tranquility, petit bourgeois idylls and philistinism associated with it.

Francesco Carelli - University Milan, Rome

The Italian painter Enrico Baj, born in Milan in 1924, graduated in law while attending Brera Academy, founder of the Nuclear Movement was involved in Italian and international avant-garde movements, and from 1950 exhibited his works regularly in Paris. In over 50 years of activity Baj never stopped to try out and to be renewed, both in choosing themes and in using different pictorial and engraving techniques, among which also collage with a variety of materials (fabric, braid, buttons, lace, medals, coloured glass, mirror fragments, Meccano and Lego parts, articles of everyday use).

Ligabue, genius and madness

Francesco Carelli, University Milan , Rome

Antonio Ligabue is a self-taught artist. His pictures are childlike and uninhibited, based on instinct. Considered one of the most interesting artists of the 20th century, his genius is founded on solitude and emargination. Liguabue suffered from mental illness and experienced neglect and abandonment in childhood.

Hopper: love for clear light

By Francesco Carelli - University Milan, Rome

Some call him a storyteller, while others consider him the only artist who could capture the very instant – crystallized in time – of a scene, or the essence of a person. After all, it was Edward Hopper himself (1882-1967) – the best-known and most popular American artist of the 20th century, a man of few words, a retiring personality who loved the ocean and the horizon, and the clear light in his large studio – who explained his poetics: “If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.”
