This is a special opportunity to visit an exhibition that collects almost 150 original works from the Renaissance to the contemporary age, highlighting one of the most repressed and uncontrolled aspects of the practice of drawing.
Offering unprecedented comparisons between the works of early modern masters – Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Pontormo, Tiziano, Bernini … – and those of the major modern and contemporary artists – Picasso, Dubuffet, Henri Michaux, Helen Levitt, Cy Twombly, Basquiat, Luigi Pericles … – the exhibition confuses chronological classifications and traditional categories (margin and center, official and unofficial, classic and contemporary, work and document) and places the practice of scribbling at the center of artistic practice.
Furthermore, on Saturday 14 May the exhibition Gribouillage/Scarabocchio. Da Leonardo da Vinci a Cy Twombly will be exceptionally open to the public, with free admission, from 20:00 to 2:00. Visitors will be able to access the exhibition every quarter of an hour starting at 20:00 and up to 1:30 by booking a time slot.
The Gribouillage / Scarabocchio exhibition. From Leonardo da Vinci to Cy Twombly, still underway at Villa Medici until 22 May, is curated by Francesca Alberti (Villa Médicis) and Diane Bodart (Columbia University), with the associate curator Philippe-Alain Michaud (Center Pompidou).
Finally, we remind you that the catalog in French is available at the Villa Medici bookshop. The publication in Italian will be available from Monday 16 May 2022. More information at this link.
As part of the Night of the Museums, the exhibition will be free from 8pm.
Access every 15 minutes from 20.00 and until one and a half upon reservation of a time slot.
