abstract

The essay looks at the maturity of Ettore Tito, an artist of transition between the nineteenth-twentieth century, as an anti-Altersstil since in his case we are not dealing with discontinuities connected with a renewed attitude. His late international impressionism has been considered anachronistic as in the emblematic case of the antinomy between the two personal exhibitions of Tito and Modigliani at the 1930 Biennale of Venice. The essay aims to consider the Altersstil as a methodological ‘tool’, as opportunity to reflect on the history of official taste and of the first forty years of the Biennale, both around curatorial strategies and the display as story of taste.
