FIRENZE/ITALY: The relationship between artists and the sacred, started centuries ago, seemed to know a partial crisis in 20th century
New trends of society, secularization, historical and political events, maybe even a different attitude of man and artist towards the transcendent caused a certain estrangement between artists and Faith.
This could not be forgotten by a cultured, very intuitive and forward-looking Pope as Paul VI when in a famous speech to the artists in 1964 advocated a rapprochement between the Church and artists, who had walked embraced for centuries

We must also remember that during his Pontificate the Collection of Modern Religious Art was established, a very interesting section of Musei Vaticani in Rome, where important works of Twentieth century artists are on display.
This exhibition in Florence “Bellezza divina tra Van Gogh, Chagall e Fontana” (“Divine beauty among Van Gogh, Chagall and Fontana”) gives to the visitor a possibility to reflect about sacred through beautiful important works of artists such as Felice Casorati, Gino Severini, Renato Guttuso, Lucio Fontana, Vincent van Gogh, Jean-François Millet, Edvard Munch, Max Ernst, Henri Matisse, Georges Rouault and many others.
A tour through the most different artistic trends of the 20th century that have always as reference point the sacred and the absolute.
