First major retrospective dedicated to Emma Bonazzi (1881-1959) opens at Institute of fine arts Gaetano Chierici in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
The Italian Institute of Fine Arts Gaetano Chierici in Reggio Emilia is dedicating an exhibition accompanied by a complete retrospective to Emma Bonazzi. Emma Bonazzi, also known by the nickname of Tigiù, was an eclectic artist, fine illustrator, but especially the woman that in Italy, between the two world wars, created for Barilla, Perugina, Buitoni the first advertising campaigns.
The country, he loved for a short period the artistic production of Emma Bonazzi forgetting it at the end of World War II. Why ? Because Emma Bonazzi evades an art-historical classification. Emma Bonazzi's extremely varied oeuvre, influenced by experimentation and upheavals. Emma was a woman too emancipated for the historical period in which he lived in his country. A visionary who was not understood by the vast majority of art critics. In fact, Emma died in Bologna in 1959, living his last years in a situation of poverty.
Its cultural production was otherwise very appreciated in Northern Europe and the United States. At the Wolfsonian–Florida International University, in Miami Beach, It is possible for example to admire certain works of Emma Bonazzi.
From 5 October to 30 November 2013, at the old hall of columns of the Institute of Fine Arts Gaetano Chierici, Italy will rediscover an artist who had forgotten for a long time. Some works of Emma Bonazzi come from the private collection of the multinational company Barilla. Company in which Emma had worked creating with the founder Pietro Barilla the first advertising campaigns of his pasta. More information : http://www.liceochierici.re.it
