The exhibition Bellezza Divina tra Van Gogh, Chagall e Fontana (Divine Beauty from Van Gogh to Chagall and Fontana) at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence explores the relationship between art and religion during the century from 1850 to 1950, covering a wide array of art movements and styles: from Realism, Divisionism and Symbolism, to Expressionism and Futurism.

Over one hundred works by celebrated Italian and international artists highlight the different approaches on modernity, trends and occasional clashes between art and religious sentiment.

Highlights of the exhibition are Jean-François Millet’s The Angelus (1859) from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, Vincent van Gogh’s Pietà (1889) from the Vatican Museums, Renato Guttuso’s Crucifixion (1941) from the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome and Marc Chagall’s White Crucifixion (1938) from the Art Institute of Chicago.

Other works are by major Italian artists like Domenico Morelli, Gaetano Previati, Felice Casorati, Gino Severini, Lucio Fontana and Emilio Vedova, and international masters such as Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Stanley Spencer, Georges Rouault and Henri Matisse.
