American Dreamers Facing or Escaping Reality in Contemporary Art | Florence, Italy

2 March, 2012

The Centro di Cultura Contemporanea Strozzina (CCCS – www.strozzina.org) at the Palazzo Strozzi (www.palazzostrozzi.org) in Florence, Italy, is currently organizing for the spring/summer 2012 in partnership with the Hudson River Museum, New York.

2012 marks the 500th Anniversary since the death of the Florentine navigator Amerigo Vespucci, who gave his name to America. The city of Florence will mark this event with two exhibitions conceived to honour the strong ties linking the Old World and the New. One of the exhibitions will be “Americans in Florence: Sargent and the American Impressionists” presented at the Piano Nobile of Palazzo Strozzi exploring the American impressionists' relationship with Italy, and with Florence in particular, in the decades spanning the close of the 19th and dawn of the 20th centuries. The historical show will present works by John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Winslow Homer, William Morris Hunt, John La Farge and Thomas Eakins.
