Dogs in pose


Rooms of the Arts, 1st floor.
Until 19 May

This is the first major exhibition in Italy on the theme of "dogs in art", presenting sculptures and paintings by some of the greatest artists of all time, from the Antiquity to the modern day.

The exhibition is focused on the constant presence of dogs in the tradition of western figurative art, often as a secondary motif in great historical painting, but also as a genre in its own right, cultivated by "animalist" painters or artists from various sectors, who have produced autonomous works as well as portraits.  After the human figure, the dog, "man's best friend", is the most widely represented animal in art, bearing witness to a deep-set bond and an elective affinity that exceeds the boundaries of formal decoration.

Exhibition concept by: Fulco Ruffo di Calabria, organized by: Glocal Project Consulting and Consorzio Residenze Reali Sabaude
