The Florence of Telemaco Signorini; exhibition at Palazzo Antinori

Lovers of the ottocento and of old Florence will love the current exhibition at the Palazzo Antinori.  Entitled “The Florence of Giovanni and Telemaco Signorini” (father and son), the show runs through 10 November 2019.  For people like me, it is a delightful experience to not only see the show, but to also have a look at the piano nobile of the Antinori Palace.

The exhibition also includes a few paintings by contemporaries of the Signorini father/son painters. It includes: Ruggero Panerai, Luigi Gioli, Francesco Gioli, Giorgio Mignaty, Adolfo Tommasi, and Antonio Puccinelli.  There is also a sculpted bust of Telemaco Signorini by Giovanni Dupre.

Here’s what the brochure announces about this exhibition:
