Milan, June 7, 2022 – From June 10 to July 17, 2022 in the Gallerie d’Italia in Milan, in the Intesa Sanpaolo Museum, the Henraux Collection 1960-1970 exhibition open to the public; This exhibition, curated by Edoardo Bonaspetti, artistic director of the Fondation Henraux, is dedicated to the important collection of marble sculptures created by the Tuscan marble company.
The exhibition, which takes place in the impressive Cortile Ottagono and in the Giardino d’Alessandro of the Gallerie d’Italia in Milan, presents 7 of the 25 Henraux sculptures from the Intesa Sanpaolo collection. For this occasion, the entire sculptural group has undergone a comprehensive and innovative restoration. This initiative is just a preview of the major exhibition that will take place from July 25th to September 18th in Querceta di Seravezza, at the headquarters of the Henraux Foundation. Starting with the appreciation of the 7 sculptures by Intesa Sanpaolo, the Milan exhibition presents documents, archival photos, models and reproductions divided into thematic groups, recalling the vital context in which the sculptures were created, the birth of the Henraux collection and the exceptional Example of corporate culture provided by the company. The elements of the exhibition are made of marble – material extracted from the same quarries that the artists then chose for their own sculptures – and they convey the creative processes that lead from raw material to artwork and a unique and virtuous relationship between nature , culture and industry.
THE ARTISTIC COLLECTION OF THE HENRAUX FOUNDATION
In more than 200 years of activity, Henraux has been at the forefront of countless projects and collaborations in international visual culture. Founded in 1821 by former Napoleonic officer Jean Baptiste Alexandre Henraux and entrepreneur Marco Borrini from Versilia, the history of the marble company is intertwined with important contributions in the world of art, architecture and restoration.
After the Second World War, Henraux developed an exceptional relationship with the visual arts under the far-sighted direction of Erminio Cidonio, who became sole director of the company in 1956. In an environment shaken by impulses and the need for renewal, Henraux redefined its corporate and cultural identity, capturing in Italian dynamism and artistic passion the possibilities at stake between sculptural experimentation and industrial production. The 1957 encounter with the British sculptor Henry Moore, who came to Versilia to create the monumental abstract work lying figure for the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, fueled this dynamism and helped launch a heyday of innovation and artistic research. Within a few years Jean (Hans) Arp, Pietro Cascella, Rosalda Gilardi, Émile Gilioli, Jacques Lipchitz, Morice Lipsi, Joan Miró, Isamu Noguchi, Maria Papa Rostkowska, Giò Pomodoro, Antoine Poncet, Branko Ružić, François Stahly, Georges Vantongerloo and many others others came to Querceta, a hamlet in the municipality of Seravezza in the province of Lucca, and made their sculptures with the labor and marble of Henraux, contributing to a broader cultural revitalization of the company and the area.
Between the late sixties and early seventies, due to changes in business strategies, the power of this extraordinary experience began to weaken and shortly thereafter, in 1972, it was exhibited in the Cortile d’Onore of the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara, the collection being dispersed. In 1973, under the enlightened presidency of Raffaele Mattioli, the then Banca Commerciale Italiana acquired 25 works, which were then integrated into what is now Intesa Sanpaolo’s collection of modern and contemporary art.
