The 500th anniversary of Perugino’s death is an opportunity to rediscover this incredible artist in an innovative and engaging way.
With this in mind, from 21 June to 2 October at Palazzo Baldeschi, in Corso Vannucci in Perugia, there will be an exhibition not just a simple show, but a real dialogue between two of the greatest artists of Umbrian origin: Pietro Vannucci and Alberto Burri.
Two great masters united by the evocative use of black backgrounds in their work, able to give spark to a completely new exhibition. A real novelty in the exhibition scene, in which the visitor can experience the comparison between Renaissance and contemporary art.
About 20 works will be on display, carefully selected by the exhibition’s two curators, art historian Vittoria Garibaldi and Burri Foundation President Bruno Corà.
Thanks to the collaboration with the Burri Foundation, which has made available the works of the artist from Città di Castello, and to the important loans from prestigious museums, starting from the National Gallery of Umbria to the Uffizi Gallery and the Louvre Museum, it has been possible to create an engaging exhibition itinerary that brings out the common traits of two artists equally great and only apparently distant.
