25.11.1978 — 07.01.1979
Ten years after the inaugural exhibition, the Galleria dello Scudo pays tribute to Filippo de Pisis, a painter who loved the Veneto region and Venice in particular, who also stayed several times in Verona since 1923. De Pisis never forgot the city of Verona, as reveals a testimony by Giovanni Comisso, in which he states that “for de Pisis Verona was a crazy city, crazier than its crazy citizens”. He confided “that in Verona he felt warmed by the languid medieval warmth and he wanted to stay there forever”.
With sixty paintings and twenty works on paper from public collections such as the Museo d’Arte Moderna Ca 'Pesaro in Venice, the Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona, the Museo d’Arte Moderna "Mario Rimoldi" in Cortina d'Ampezzo and numerous private collections, the exhibition documents the entire evolution of the artist's language, from his youthful approach to metaphysics through a series of collages and mixed techniques on paper from 1916, to marine still lifes or triumphant floral compositions of the twenties and thirties, up to the vibrant views of London and Paris painted during his stays abroad.
