Italian “Divisionists” at the Guggenheim
Today I read about an art movement I’d never heard of before: the Italian “Divisionists”, so called because they borrowed some color techniques from the French Pointillists; but then, true to their heritage, they constructed a new approach based on the long tradition of Italian painting. There’s a current exhibition of their work at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. When I looked at the website, I was really intrigued and drawn in by the “highlights” paintings that are shown there. Looks as if this exhibition merits a visit!
