50 never-before-seen works from the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna
Born of the exceptional collaboration with the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna, one of the most prestigious museums in the world, the exhibition Natura in posa. Masterpieces from the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna in dialogue with contemporary photography, brings 50 works that have never been seen before in Italy, including Flemish masterpieces from the 16th and 17th centuries, together with paintings from the most important Venetian museums. Extraordinary vanitas, floral compositions, refined market scenes and sumptuously laid tables sit alongside depictions of interiors and the seasons or beautifully rendered iconic symbols that remind us of the transience of life and its pleasures, like butterflies, books, vases and instruments.

From Brueghel to Mapplethorpe
The surprising exhibition narrative, both thematically and chronologically, shows the evolution of the pictorial genre of the “still life”, which reached its peak around the 17th century, and represents, today, one of the most influential sources of inspiration for major contemporary photographers, who reinvent and reinterpret the topic with personal and visionary allusions.

The work of artists like Francesco Bassano, LodovicoPozzoserrato, Jan Brueghel ilVecchio, Pieter Claesz, Willem ClaeszHeda, Jan Weenix, Gerard Dou,EvaristoBaschenis, Gasparo Lopez dei Fiori and ElisabettaMarchioni – that enchant with their pomp and perfection – dialogue with the most iconic photographs. From David LaChapelle’s deceptive vanitas to Martin Parr’s raw and ironic reportages on mass consumption, from Robert Mapplethorpe’s magnificent and sensual flowers to Nobuyoshi Araki’s Flowers, from Franco Vimercati's series dedicated to soup tureens to Hans Op De Beeck’s idea of pictorial classicism, all the way to Herbarium by Nino Migliori.
