MOSCOW.- Moscow Museum of Modern Art opens the first Russian personal exhibition of Francesca Leone, the artists which picturesque canvas take a special place in actual Italian art. The project "Beyond the gaze" will present to the spectator nearby 30 large-sized pictorial works amazing even tempted public by carefulness of the technique, the concentrated sensibleness of chromatic transitions and extreme refinement of experiences in a combination to the force of a visual spell. The exhibition is dated for display of the film of Sergio Leone restored by director Martin Scorsese within the Moscow international film festival.

Francesca Leone was born in Rome in a creative and versatile family: her father, Sergio Leone was the outstanding film director removing Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood and Ennio Morricone, Francesca’s mother was the famous ballerina, the grandmother – the actress. Since her birth Francesca has been allocated by a deep, spontaneous emotionality which has expressed in her pictorial works.

In the beginning of her creative way Francesca Leone studied and reinterpreted art experience of futurists: J. Severirni, U. Boccioni, C. Carra, J. Balla. The enamourment of futurism was reflected on the works of the artist – for her creativity are characteristic energetical compositions where figures movements are shown in a dynamic stream of time, where prevail flashing forms zigzags, oblique lines, where movement is transferred by imposing of consecutive phases to one image —by so-called principle of simultaneity. This “close- dynamic” art principle is reflected in her huge portraits, like they are piling on the spectator and not holding in canvas borders.

Despite the obvious narrative and the coloristic dramatic nature of her works, Francesca Leone tells the story, which is made not by events, but thoughts. The artist has chosen a theme of the picturesque matter formed and transformed in front of the eyes of the spectator. As the image cannot or should not be allocated by a static, which would has fixed it once and forever. The deep sense of Francesca’s works is concealed in the metamorphoses of the matter symbolizing a condition of human existence in a labyrinth of a city and intimacy of the house.

Characters of pictorial works of Francesca Leone are distinguished by the highest concentration of pressure which generates ideas and actions. The theme of the city and loneliness is represented in her portraits, heroes, thoughts and actions. Francesca Leone introduces in hyperrealism sensual, emotional measurement and creates magnificent pictures on execution which can be defined as classical works of the big style – but it is the modern classics, the classics of our time.
