Share Article

Anyone visiting Florence over the next month may want to take some time to see the Art and Illusions exhibition being held in the city.

Florence's Palazzo Strozzi gallery is playing host to an unusual exhibition of art works designed to deceive the eye.

All the pieces in the Art and Illusions collection are classed as trompe l'oeil masterpieces, a realistic style of painting that aims to create an optical illusion to intrigue its audience.

People staying in accommodation in Florence (http://www.laterooms.com/en/k13645939_florence-hotels.aspx) may want to catch a glimpse of this unique exhibition that comprises works from private collectors, Italian and international museums.

Artists on show include historical masters such as Mantegna and Veronese alongside their contemporary counterparts such as Peto and Haberle - American artists whose work has never been displayed in Europe before.

Sculptures, paintings and frescoes make up just some of the installations being housed in the museum.

Palazzo Strozzi is open daily from 09:00 to 20:00 local time and entry costs €10 (£9), with a discounted rate of €8.50 for concessions and groups of 15 people or more.

To make the most of the Art and Illusions exhibition - you should consider booking your hotel Firenze (http://www.laterooms.com/it/k13645939_hotel-firenze.aspx) to avoid disappointment.

Running until January 24th, fans of the movement only have one month to enjoy the unrivalled selection of illusionary works that document its history, from its roots in ancient Greco-Roman society to its current form.
