About the Book

English summary: The experience of the Modern Painters of Reality, which began after the end of the Second World War, is a short adventure during which the fates of four painters intertwine. They are Gregorio Sciltian, Pietro Annigoni and the brothers Xavier and Antonio Bueno, signatories of a manifesto which lashes out against the results of modernism and the "blunders" of the Ecole de Paris, and defends the great pictorial tradition by referring to 17th century art, from Caravaggio to Spanish and Flemish painting. They are joined by Giovanni Acci, Alfredo Serri and Carlo Guarienti. The Painting of Reality is the common ideological and aesthetic horizon towards which each of them will manifest original creative paths. Their cultured and refined painting is enriched by the mastery of ancient artistic techniques, in line with the "return to craftsmanship" advocated by de Chirico, a constant reference in their careers. In their five collective exhibitions, the artists receive appreciation from the public and from collectors, but a large part of the critics views their art as anachronistic, neglecting the fact that, in their act of faith towards reality, a reaffirmation of moral values can be found. The exhibition and the catalogue investigate the reasons for this short partnership by presenting the pictorial beginnings of the artists and considering the paths that each one will undertake, starting from the 1950s. The complexity of their individual careers authorises us to reconsider the story of the Modern Painters of Reality as a significant experience in the history of 20th century Italian art. Italian description: L'esperienza dei Pittori moderni della realta, avviatasi dopo la fine della Seconda guerra mondiale, e una breve avventura durante la quale s'intrecciano i destini di quattro pittori, Gregorio Sciltian, Pietro Annigoni e i fratelli Xavier e Antonio Bueno, firmatari di un manifesto che si scaglia contro gli esiti del modernismo e gli "abbagli" dell'Ecole de Paris e difende la grande tradizione pittorica rifacendosi all'arte seicentesca, da Caravaggio alla pittura spagnola e fiamminga. A loro si aggiungono Giovanni Acci, Alfredo Serri e Carlo Guarienti. La pittura della realta e l'orizzonte ideologico ed estetico comune verso il quale ognuno manifestera originali percorsi creativi. La loro pittura colta e raffinata e arricchita dalla padronanza delle antiche tecniche artistiche, in linea con il "ritorno al mestiere" propugnato da de Chirico, riferimento continuo per le loro carriere. Nelle cinque collettive realizzate, gli artisti riscuotono apprezzamento dal pubblico e dal collezionismo, ma gran parte della critica giudica la loro arte anacronistica, trascurando come nel loro atto di fede nei confronti della realta ci sia la riaffermazione di valori morali. La mostra e il catalogo approfondiscono le ragioni di questo breve sodalizio presentando gli esordi pittorici degli artisti e interrogandosi sui percorsi che ognuno intraprendera a partire dagli anni Cinquanta. La complessita delle singole carriere ci autorizza a riconsiderare la vicenda dei Pittori moderni della realta come un'esperienza significativa nella storia dell'arte italiana del Novecento.
