CELESTIAL EPICS – leopold strobl at the villa medici, rome

01/03/ - 19/05/24


The exhibition “CELESTIAL EPICS” at the Villa Medici invites visitors to discover 180 selected works from the Bruno Decharme collection, a true panorama of Art Brut on an international level. Works by our represented artist Leopold Strobl, among others, will be shown.

The obsession and perseverance of collector Bruno Decharme, who has devoted his life to building up one of the world’s most important collections of art brut, invites us to question our convictions and take a benevolent look at the very notion of creation, putting forward the idea that to create a world is to create art.
