Giovanni Segantini.


A leading Italian Post-Impressionist, Giovanni Segantini (1858-1899) was part of the movement known as Divisionism. During the final decade of the last century, he produced extraordinary landscape paintings, for the most part dedicated to the mountains of Engadine, canvases in which nature is invested with a profound spirituality. Segantini's luminous color accentuates the allegorical character of his compositions and prepared the way for his late foray into Symbolist territory. On the centenary of his death, Gabriella Belli, director of the museum, and Segantini scholar Annie Paule Quinsac bring together seven important large-scale paintings and some hundred related works on paper. Dec. 3, 1999-Mar. 19, 2000.
