Even if the Christmas holidays are over, who is still on holiday in our territory and not only, can still visit some exhibitions at the Pepoli Museum in Trapani; in particular, we highlight the exhibition "Venite Adoremus" until January 13, in which a series of crib figures are exhibited to the public in the traditional technique of wood, canvas and glue, depicting the Nativity and the coming of the Magi, who worship the Child.
This representation, which still makes us immerse in the Christmas atmosphere, is the work of a sculptor from Trapani in the second half of the eighteenth century and is composed of small sculptures, which come partly from the collection of the Pepoli Museum, and from the nearby church of the Annunciation .
The other exhibition that can be visited, instead, until 20 February is that of "Il Pissarro Ritrovato", which exposes to the public a precious painting by the French painter Jacob Abrahm Camille Pissarro, one of the leading exponents of French Impressionism, who died in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century.
Like all genes, he was very misunderstood at the beginning, above all by his father, who tried hard to obstruct him, because for him he thought of starting it in a rich career as a merchant.
Despite the difficulties, Pissarro never abandoned his passions, on the contrary he cultivated them intensely.
On display at the Museo Pepoli one of his most important works "La Negresse", where the public can admire a painting with three female figures, one sitting and the others standing next to her, while in the background it is possible to see a meadow .
The authenticity of the work, created in 1850, is guaranteed by one of the artistīs sons, who tried to sell the painting several times, but due to the nudity of the female figures, he met the resistance of bigoted France and not just the beginnings 20th century.
After various difficulties, he managed to sell it to an Italian buyer, who took him to Como.
Subjected to a complicated restoration, some investigations on the pigments that were conducted with ultraviolet have unveiled a preparatory design.
