Tornabuoni Art | Paris
Founded in 1981 in Florence by Roberto Casamonti, Tornabuoni Art is specialised in Italian art of the second half of the 20th Century. It established exhibition spaces in Crans Montana in 1993, Milan in 1995, Forte Dei Marmi in 2004, Paris in 2009 and London in 2015.
Tornabuoni Art Paris presents the work of artists such as Fontana, Burri, Castellani, Manzoni, Dorazio, Bonalumi, Dadamaino and Boetti, as well as those of major protagonists of the Italian Novecento, such as De Chirico, Morandi, Balla, Severeni and Sironi.
The gallery also proposes works of essential artists of the 20th Century, such as Picasso, Mirò, Kandinsky, Hartung, Poliakoff, Dubuffet, Lam, Matta, Christo, Wesselmann, Warhol and Basquiat.
Since inaugurating its Parisian space in 2009, with an exhibition dedicated to Lucio Fontana, Tornabuoni Art has organized numerous monographic exhibitions, showing the works of Alighiero Boetti (2010), Arnaldo Pomodoro (2011), Enrico Castellani (2011), Mimmo Rotella (2012), Giuseppe Capogrossi (2013), Dadamaino (2013) and in 2014 presented an exceptional exhibition "Lucio Fontana, rediscovery of a masterpiece" in parallel with the retrospective at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the first exhibition in France of Turi Simeti and most recently retrospectives of Alberto Biasi (2015), Giuseppe Chiari (2015), Paolo Scheggi (2015) and Piero Dorazio (2016).
In February 2017, the gallery inaugurated its new space in the Marais, with an exhibition dedicated to Alighiero Boetti, and organised the first solo exhibitions in France of Emilio Isgrò and Francesca Pasquali. These solo-shows were followed by an exhibition on avant-garde artists in Post-War Rome "La Dolce Vita", a personal exhibition on the iconic 20th Century Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico, and those of Afro (2018) and Alberto Burri (2018)
Each solo show is put together through close collaboration with the artist, or the artist's foundation, and is accompanied by an exhibition catalogue.
Tornabuoni Art participates in major international art fairs and events such as the FIAC in Paris, TEFAF in Maastricht and New York, Art Basel Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Basel Hong Kong, Art Genève and Art Monte Carlo, Artefiera in Bologna, Frieze New York, Frieze Masters and Masterpiece in London.
Thanks to its experience and intimate knowledge of the artists it represents, the gallery helps major museums in expertise and guidance, as well as acting as advisor for both private and public collections.
