Fantastico! Italian Art from the 1920s and 1930s

Fantastico! will explore an artistic movement known as magic realism, which emerged in Italy at the end of the First World War. Magic realism shows the world as it is while adding to it new, strange and dreamlike layers. The depictions of everyday life seem to reveal a hidden side of existence. 

The exhibition will feature masterpieces by artists such as Giorgio de Chirico, Carlo Carrà, Felice Casorati, Antonio Donghi and Cagnaccio di San Pietro. The exhibition will also include works by artists featured in the Ateneum collection who represent the realist and classicist modernism of the 1920s and 1930s in Finland, such as Ragnar Ekelund, Greta Hällfors-Sipilä, Yrjö Ollila and Ilmari Vuori.
