24 Oct-10 Jan. This exhibition is dedicated to the political illustrations of 20th-century Italian modernist artist Mario Sironi.
The 345 illustrations on display were created by Sironi between 1921 and 1942 for Il Popolo d'Italia, the fascist daily newspaper of the Partito Fascista.
Sironi's satirical illustrations target liberals and political parties opposed to fascism, the democracies of America, France and England, and communist Russia.
Sironi embraced numerous art movements throughout his life, including symbolism, futurism and metaphysical art. He is also associated with Italian fascism which led to his fall from favour in later life.
As an artist he was active as a painter, illustrator, graphic designer, architect, sculptor and muralist.
