Josep Santilari, Pere Santilari and the still life of the Golden Age

10th March, 2021 - 14th May, 2021

Still life is a genre that was born with painting as a fiction of reality, and that in the seventeenth century reaches its golden age. Josep Santilari and Pere Santilari (b. 1959) have renewed the genre by looking at the classics, offering, with discipline and sensitivity, a new version. For the first time, this exhibition confronts the two approaches – the old and the current – to the subject. Thus, the Santilari twins crystallize reality in subtle and fragile works, which doubly capture the beauty of the world.
