The Enchanted Room

Estorick Collection, London

NOW CLOSED

Works from the Pinacoteca di Brera

The Estorick opens its 20th anniversary year with a major exhibition of works from one of the world’s most important collections of modern Italian art, housed at Milan’s Pinacoteca di Brera. Comprising paintings and sculptures donated to the museum by Emilio and Maria Jesi, it includes iconic works by artists including Umberto Boccioni, Gino Severini, Mario Sironi, Carlo Carrà, and Giorgio de Chirico. Among the highlights of the exhibition will be Carrà’s The Metaphysical Muse (1917), Amedeo Modigliani’s famous Portrait of the Painter Moïse Kisling (1915), and Ardengo Soffici’s exuberant Cubo-Futurist collage Watermelon and Liqueurs (1914). This is the first time a major part of the Jesi collection has been shown outside of Italy. It will be displayed alongside a rehang of the Estorick’s own permanent collection. Find out more about ‘The Enchanted Room’ from the Estorick’s website.
