The Museum maintains a vital relationship with the landscape through a continuous activity of research, conservation and cultural-artistic promotion. Education is also part of the Museum’s mission, carried out through a series of different activities including events, workshops, seminars and workshops for adults and children.
Its main venue is at Palazzo Viani Dugnani in Verbania Pallanza, which hosts the Gipsothèque Troubetzkoy, the Arturo Martini sculpture collection, the Pinacoteca and temporary exhibitions.
The economic security, which made him independent from the requests of the client, allowed him to develop a very personal style: his portraits take shape at the very tops of very fluid plaster, which modeled with quick and nervous strokes of the spatula, leaving the details of the face to surface, always with the traits of the “unfinished”.
Troubetzkoy attended the best society of his time, and among the works preserved in the collection of the Museum we find portraits of famous personalities such as the Baron de Rothschild, George Bernard Shaw, Lev Tolstoy, Mary Pickford, and many others.
The overview of the selected works testifies to the variations in the interpretation of the landscape, from the centrality still of romantic origin that the theme occupies in the late nineteenth century painting, to the volumetric interpretation of the Twenties, where the landscape is constructed as an architecture and suggests a sense of solidity and duration, up to the new sense of precariousness expressed since the Thirties.
An evocative and fascinating journey through masterpieces of art, between scenarios of great poetry, beauty and colors of works ranging from the late nineteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century, to investigate the timeless relationship between man and nature.
