GAM - Galleria d'Arte Moderna


About the Exhibition

Two important collections tell the Divisionism: the GAM/Galleria d’Arte Moderna of Milan and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio of Tortona dedicate an important exhibition to the extraordinary Divisionist period, of which they preserve the works of some of the most significant exponents.

Staged in the evocative rooms of the Villa Reale, the exhibition is based on comparisons between the works in the rich collection of the Pinacoteca di Tortona and those in the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Milan.

Through thirty works, divided into five sections, “Divisionismo. 2 Collezioni” aims to focus on the founding elements of the Divisionist experience and its protagonists: Giacomo Balla, Leonardo Bistolfi, Umberto Boccioni, Giulio Branca, Luigi Conconi, Tranquillo Cremona, Carlo Fornara, Giuseppe Grandi, Emilio Longoni, Angelo Morbelli, Plinio Nomellini, Giuseppe Pellizza, Gaetano Previati, Attilio Pusterla, Daniele Ranzoni, Giovanni Segantini, Giovanni Sottocornola, Paolo Troubetzkoy.

What is “Divisionism”?

Divisionism can be defined as a variant of Pointillism, characterized by the separation of colors into individual dots or lines that interact with each other in an optical sense.

Born at the end of the 19th century, Divisionism is an all-Italian artistic phenomenon and Milan was its key city. It was here that many of its interpreters studied, here that many of them found inspiration for works of social criticism, and here that they exhibited for the first time at the Brera Triennial in 1891.
