  VENICE — An event will be inaugurated on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice in dedication of the painter Hans-Joachim Staude on November 18. 


  Hans-Joachim Staude was a German artist, who resided in Florence, until his death in 1973. This event is in light of new interpretations and his unpublished writings, donated to the exhibition by his children Jakob Staude and Angela Staude Terzani in collaboration with the Fondazione Giorgio Cini. 


  For five days, the Sala Piccolo Teatro will display an exhibition, curated by Francesco Poli and Elena Pontiggia, with 27 paintings - portraits, landscapes, still life - painted between 1929 and 1973. This will be accompanied by a conference involving a speech by 11 art historians, both Italian and foreign, on November 18 and 19.
