ARTURO MARTINI

ARTWORKS BY THE 20th CENTURY GREATEST ITALIAN SCULPTOR
EXHIBITED IN BOLOGNA AND IN FAENZA

The Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio in Bologna in collaboration with the Fondazione Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche in Faenza have scheduled two exhibitions in honor of the greatest Italian sculptor of the first half of 20th century, Arturo Martini (Treviso 1889 – Milan 1947).

In Bologna at Palazzo Fava, the exhibition Arturo Martini. Creature, il sogno della terracotta (Creatures. The dream of the earthenware, 22 September 2013 – 12 January 2014), will be curated by Nico Stringa. “Creatures” is Massimo Bontempelli’s definition of the dreaming figures created by Martini in the central period of his activity which determined a decisive change in the monolithic realm of Italian sculpture.
For the first time, Arturo Martini’s great earthenware works dating from the period 1928-1932 shall be exhibited together. Arturo Martini’s creative process was notoriously concentrated into a short period of feverish activity, sometimes lasting only a few weeks, which he himself called “the time of  song”. These phases gave rise to his most elevated poetic. 

Works include: Madre folle (1929), La lupa (1932), Chiaro di luna (1931-32), Gare invernali (Sport invernali)(1931-32), Donna al sole (1930), Le sorelle (Le stelle) (1932), Convalescente (1932),  Venere dei porti (1932), L’Aviatore (1931-32), Attesa (La veglia) (1931-32).


In Faenza, the Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche - MIC hosts the second exhibition Arturo Martini. Armonie, figure tra mito e realtà (Harmonies. Figures between myth and reality,  13 October 2013 – 30 March 2014), curated by Claudia Casali, in collaboration with the Musei Civici in Treviso.
About fifty works harmonically dialogue with the exhibition in Palazzo Fava and complete the artist’s creative career showing his different languages through the use of ceramics, bronze, wood, marble, stone and plaster.

Among the most important exhibits: Ritratto di Fanny Nado Martini (1905), Davide Moderno (1908), La lettura (1910 ca), La fanciulla piena d’amore (1913), La lussuriosa (1918), La pulzella di Orleans (1920), Leda (1926), La leggenda di San Giorgio (1926-27), Presepio piccolo e grande (1926-27), La pisana (grande frammento) (1928), Lo spaventapasseri (1928-29), La Nena (1930), Odalisca (1930), Torso (1930), Donna sdraiata (1932), Vittoria in cammino (1932), Abbraccio-amplesso (1936-1940), Nuotatrice (1942),  Signorina seduta (1943), Donna sulla sabbia (1944).
