Catalogue of the exhibition ‘Tribute to Maurizio Fagiolo dello’Arco’.
About forty works are on display, starting with the splendid self-portrait signed in 1665 by Giovan Battista Gaulli, the Baciccio, one of the pieces in the collection of seventeenth-century Roman paintings donated by the Fagiolo couple to the Baroque Museum of Ariccia. And then – testifying to the breadth of interests and skills matured over the course of his career by the great scholar – works executed throughout the 20th century by the artists who were the focus of his heterogeneous studies. A selection in which the voices of Carla Accardi, Getulio Alviani, Giacomo Balla, Alighiero Boetti, Corrado Cagli, Duilio Cambellotti, Giuseppe Capogrossi, Giuseppe Chiari, Guido Crepax, Giorgio de Chirico, Lucio Del Pezzo, Jim Dine, Piero Dorazio, Ferruccio Ferrazzi, Tano Festa, Giorgio Griffa, Mario Mafai are interwoven, Carlo Maria Mariani, Roberto Melli, Fausto Melotti, Nunzio, Giulio Paolini, Pino Pascali, Fausto Pirandello, Antonietta Raphael, Man Ray, Antonio Sanfilippo, Giulio Aristide Sartorio, Alberto Savinio, Mario Schifano, Carlo Socrates, Armando Spadini, Francesco Trombadori, Giulio Turcato, Andy Warhol, Alberto Ziveri.
