Female bodies in pose is all along a topic of huge influence for Fausto Pirandello: mellow colors, instrumental to the condition of being "alone with themselves," to have a lived body as punishment.
The exhibition, made up by more than twenty paintings, including six unpublished works, shows the impetuous and tortured bodies of Pirandello’s models. Therefore, it will a unique opportunity to see "Naked in the outlook", "Composition with yellow socks and bare" and "Nude on a white background".
It’s also enclosed an interesting educational unit with video and photographs that compares the works of Fausto Pirandello with those of Lucian Freud: an ideal pictorial parallelism between the son of Luigi Pirandello, playwright of personality disorders and the grandson of Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis and interpreter of the human disturbances.
