Painting of light. Burano and its painters
The Lace Museum hosts works by painters such as Rossi, Moggioli, Semeghini

The island of the Venetian lagoon Burano in the last century became an incredible inspiring scenario for artists such as Gino Rossi, Umberto Moggioli and Pio Semeghini.

At the Lace Museum in Burano, works by these painters are presented, in which nature and landscape views take on a particular intensity because the brushstroke dissolves materially becoming synonymous with light.

It all began during the first decade of the last century, when the island itself became a place infinitely connected with the avant-garde movement of Ca ‘Pesaro.

It was the era of Gino Rossi, Arturo Martini, Ugo Valeri, Luigi Scopinich, Umberto Moggioli, Felice Casorati and then, in the following years, by Pio Semeghini. What Burano represented for these artists is shown with the exhibition “Painting of light, Burano and its painters.” An island that never since then assumed the connotations of an idyllic place where the extreme desire to portray nature, “en plein air”, was born, giving voice to the decadent spirit of its poetic thought. 

For this transposition of dreamy accents, Burano was imprisoned in this vision of spiritual refuge, a paradise caught in its ethereal immersed in a “bubble of light” aimed at reiterating its unconscious beauty. A labile vision, profound and intimately reflective.
