In this in person party, professor Annie-Paule Quinsac will present her just lately-printed e-book, Divisionismo Italiano. Sguardi e prospettive 1880-1920 (Massetti Rodella Editori, 2022). The work is a revisitation of her seminal thesis “La peinture divisionniste italienne. Origines et premiers développements 1880-1895“, talked over at the Sorbonne in 1968 and published in 1972.
Working with a transversal method, Quinsac analyses the sociopolitical, historic, and ideological context that characterised Italian divisionism, from Segantini’s Avemaria a trasbordo (1886, the first Divisionist work), by way of the Symbolism of the 1890s, and up to the Futurist revolution, underscoring the ever-transforming interpretations of critics by the present.
Artists viewed as: Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Vittore Grubicy de Dragon, Giovanni Segantini, Jean François Millet, Gaetano Previati, Angelo Morbelli, Plinio Nomellini, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, Emilio Longoni, Attilio Pusterla, Carlo Fornara Ernest Meissonier, Jules Breton, Alfred Roll, Jules Adler Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Luigi Russolo, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini (and some others merely utilized for the sake of comparison).
Professor Quinsac will be in discussion with CIMA Fellow Eduardo De Maio.
Copies of the ebook will be available for purchase.
