From July 24 to September 18 Villa Carlotta presents a solo exhibition featuring selected works by artist Gabriella Benedini.
Vernissage: July 24 at 4:00pm
Gabriella Benedini was born in Cremona in 1932. After graduating at “Paolo Toschi” Institute in Parma, she attended Milan Accademia di Brera.
During her stay in Paris from 1958 to 1960, she arranged personal exhibitions and took part in collective ones.
Back to Milan, during the period of “Realismo Esistenziale”, thanks to the artist Bepi Romagnoni, she was brought into contact with the Bergamini Art Gallery, where Carlo Munari arranged her first Italian Exhibition in May 1962.
Her frequent journeys in Africa, Asia and America nourished her continuous research: places and situations conveyed suggestions and impulses that led to the definition of images and primary forms, all distinctive of her subsequent artistic path
