Schifano's Etruscan paintings at Villa Giulia in Rome

13 Dec-10 March. The National Etruscan Museum at Villa Giulia stages an exhibition of works by Italian postmodernist painter Mario Schifano, on the 20th anniverary of his death.

The show's title makes reference to the artist's "return" to Villa Giulia thanks to his strong personal and artistic connection to the museum and its ancient artefacts.

In addition to working there as a restorer from 1951 until 1962 Schifano drew inspiration from the museum's Etruscan heritage which he reinterpreted in his dynamic pop art style, bright colours surging out of dark backgrounds.

The works on display include Gli Etruschi, a series of 21 paintings inspired by Etruscan burial paintings, created in 1991, and a selection of works from his Mater Matuta series inspired by the museum's Matres (Madri) sculptures.
