Annigoni

In 2010, the city of Florence celebrated the centenary of Annigoni’s birth. The Angel Academy of Art, Florence, was asked to start the celebrations by mounting a show of students’ and instructors’ works in the Villa Bardini, which houses the Annigoni Museum. In addition, maestro M. John Angel was commissioned to paint a portrait of Annigoni, which now hangs in the Villa Peyron Museum, a museum that honours expatriates like Angel who have contributed to the ongoing traditions of Florence.
