Alfredo Serri: L’Universo si Ricompone nel Silenzio

October 2, 2014 – January 18, 2015

Alfredo Serri (Florence 1898-1972 ) was a musician and painter active in the Tuscan art scene of the 20th century, although he preferred not to publicize his work nor follow the lead of popular art “politics”. This is the first retrospective exhibition of his work, entitled l’Universo si Ricompone nel Silenzio (the universe comes together in silence), now at the Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze, curated by Stefano De Rosa.

On exhibit are some 100 paintings by the artist, many trompe l’oeil and still lifes, for the most part from a single private collection, in collaboration with the Galleria Open Art of Prato. Here, the viewer can appreciate these rarely seen works of art by the first student of artist Pietro Annigoni (1910-1988), painted by Serri after he decided to leave the world of music and dedicate his creative endeavors to painting. His works are now exhibited in numerous Italian and foreign art collections, public and private, including the Galleria d’Arte Moderna and the Roberto Longhi Foundation in Florence, the Civic Museum of Milan, the Fondazione Guelpa of Ivrea, and the Rockefeller Collection in New York.
