23 Nov-21 Jan. Exhibition comprising around 50 works, many of them never shown publicly before, by painter and sculptor Antonietta Raphaël Mafai (1895-1975).
The Lithuanian artist is best known for her role in founding the Scuola Romana in 1928, together with her husband Mario Mafai at their home on Via Cavour in Rome.
Alongside other painters such as Scipione and Donghi, the movement was characterised by expressionist and neo-classical influences, documenting the artists' daily surroundings, including the fascist demolitions of central Rome.
The exhibition presents works by Raphaël Mafai from the 1920s until her death, revealing her prevalent themes: female nudes, portraits, maternity and fertility, as well as her Jewish heritage.
Address Museo Carlo Bilotti, Viale Fiorello la Guardia, Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
