Magritte, Picasso, Modigliani and Miro at Milan’s Palazzo Reale

Milan’s Palazzo Reale, in all its 16th Century splendor, is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the portrait in the 20th Century. I’m not a great fan of the portrait, even when executed by my favorite artists, but this exhibition is worth the visit just for the breadth of works on display. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions and will make just one reflection: if you don’t find Magritte’s The Rape a tad disturbing that is, well, disturbing.

The show runs until February 9.
