Open Windows 2

This second issue of Open Window continues with its aim of offering new perspectives on works in the collection. A detailed account of the relationship between Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza and the art dealer Roman Norbert Ketterer reveals a wealth of new information on the former’s collecting activities in the field of German Expressionist painting. The meticulous studies on Bronzino’s Portrait of Cosimo I de’Medici and on Solitude. Recollection of Limousin by Camille Corot (the latter from the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection) offer new interpretative keys to these works. Finally, this issue includes a fascinating account of the eventful journey through Spain and Portugal of Marc Chagall’s painting The Madonna of the Village in the company of its creator who was fleeing from the Nazi regime, plus a thought-provoking article on how the links between Italian Futurism and the turbulent political events of the pre-war period gave rise to the powerfully liberating force of this artistic movement.
