March 8th. International women’s day
Women in art at Ca’ Pesaro

Saturday, 8th March 2014
Ca’ Pesaro, Venice

Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia will be participating in International women’s day with a tribute to the feminine world via an art-historical investigation dedicated to the depiction of women in art. The ideal venue will be Ca’ Pesaro, International Gallery of Modern Art, housing an extraordinary range of female portraits, providing an opportunity to embark on a voyage into the painting and sculpture of the 19th and 20th centuries and examine a highly interesting chapter in the history and transformation of the female ideal. The study will begin with a reflection on the wives and mothers shown in 19th-century portraits, will then touch on the mysterious Madame X by Medardo Rosso and then linger over Arturo Martini’s strongly expressive women before concluding with the brave partisan woman by Leoncillo, which is already part of the visual sculptural experience of the years after the Second World War.
