The genius of Antonio Ligabue is celebrated for the first time ever in Russia. The work of one of the protagonists of twentieth-century Italian art is presented through a wide selection of famous oils and some of his best sculptures. This intense exhibition showcases the art of a visionary genius whose work evolved continuously, the passionate research which he was capable of inventing and renewing, characterized by dazzling colours but at the same time harmonious ones, arousing emotions in the viewer and representing iconographies that were both popular and refined.
