The exhibition Segantini – Il ritorno a Milano (The Return to Milan) at Palazzo Reale in Milan covers the entire artistic life of Giovanni Segantini. From his adopted hometown Milan, where he attended classes at the Brera Academy, to the forefront of international exhibitions.
Giovanni Segantini (1858–1899) is considered an important representative of Realistic Symbolism and is known for his landscape paintings of the Alps. Although born in Italy, for most of his life he worked in Switzerland, most notably the Engadin valley in the Graubünden region.
The two most important institutions that own work by Segantini, the Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna in Milan and the Segantini Museum in St. Moritz, participate in the exhibition, which will display more than one hundred works.
