The works of Cesare Catania at the Museum of the Villa Reale in Monza
On display among the works there are also two unpublished reissues of “il Taglio (E Version) “
MONZA – Until 25 June 2019 the Villa Reale in Monza will show the works of Cesare Catania, undisputed protagonists of a prestigious exhibition itinerary, which follows the inauguration of the retrospective in his Milanese gallery. The solo exhibition will see about forty works on display and will be set up on the noble floor of the splendid historic and royal palace of Monza, right next to the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition.
ON EXHIBITION – On display among the works are also two unpublished re-editions of “Il Taglio (E Version)”, the fifth and sixth version of a series of works that start from a simple cut on a canvas and that in an abstract way explore its contents and the artistic implications.
CONTRASTS – To emphasize the chromatic contrasts, in this new diptych the artist wanted to use diamond dust among the materials at his disposal, covering entirely the work with real diamonds encapsulated in a mixture of glues and natural resins. The diamonds were provided by Jean Boulle Group, Sun King Diamond, who believed in the creative idea of Cesare Catania and supported him in the realization.
