Of the 227 works on display, 151 belong to the artist's heirs, 55 are from other private collections around the world, and the remaining 21 are from international museums.
One of our favorite parts of the exhibit was a series of 12 drawings of bulls, with each succeeding work less abstract and more detailed than the previous one. The most impressive part of the exhibit was a huge gallery with many paintings lining the perimeter and several large canvases displayed back to back and offset in two rows in the middle of the room.
The exhibit concludes with a multimedia presentation displayed on four large screens.
I would have loved to take a couple of pictures, particularly in the large gallery mentioned above, but photography is prohibited. If you have an appreciation for art and are in Milan during the exhibit's run, you should definitely check this out.
The exhibit runs through January 27, 2002. The hours are:
Monday 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday 9.30 a.m.-8 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9.30 a.m.-11 p.m.
Admission: ITL18,000 (about $9).
