The exhibition Bellezza Divina tra Van Gogh, Chagall e Fontana (Divine Beauty from Van Gogh to Chagall and Fontana) at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence explores the relationship between art and religion during the century from 1850 to 1950, covering a wide array of art movements and styles: from Realism, Divisionism and Symbolism, to Expressionism and Futurism.

Over one hundred works by celebrated Italian and international artists highlight the different approaches on modernity, trends and occasional clashes between art and religious sentiment.

Highlights of the exhibition are Jean-François Millet’s The Angelus (1859) from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, Vincent van Gogh’s Pietà (1889), Renato Guttuso’s Crucifixion(1941) and Marc Chagall’s White Crucifixion(1938).
