HANS-JOACHIM STAUDE

A EUROPEAN ARTIST IN THE ITALIAN NOVECENTO

An exhibition and a conference in Venice to honour the art of the German painter

On 18th November 2015, the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice
inaugurates an event dedicated to the German painter Hans-Joachim Staude
(Haiti 1904 - Florence 1973), who distinguished himself in Florence in the 1900s,
in the light of new interpretations and his unpublished writings. The exhibition has
been organized by his son and daughter, Jakob Staude and Angela Staude
Terzani, in collaboration with the Giorgio Cini Foundation and is curated by
Francesco Poli and Elena Pontiggia
. For five days, the Sala Piccolo Teatro will
be hosting the exhibition, consisting of 27 paintings – portraits, landscapes,
still lifes – painted between 1929 and 1973
, and will also be running a
conference (18th and 19th November) involving 11 art historians, Italian and
other, who will present further research that helps rediscover the importance of
this painter within the context of the art of the Italian Novecento.
