Alonso Berruguete, Pedro Machuca, Bartolome Ordonez and Diego de Siloe were known as the Aguilas del Renacimiento Español, the Eagles of the Spanish Renaissance, on account of their outstanding skills, which were a product of their extended study in Italy.

Exposition : « The Chiaroscuro Woodcut in Renaissance Italy », Los Angeles County Museum of Art, du 3 juin au 16 septembre 2018.

Displaying exquisite designs, technical virtuosity, and sumptuous color, chiaroscuro woodcuts are among the most striking prints of the Renaissance. First introduced in Italy around 1516, the chiaroscuro woodcut, which involves printing an image from two or more woodblocks inked in different hues, was one of the most successful early forays into color printing in Europe. Taking its name from the Italian for “light” (chiaro) and “shade” (scuro), the technique creates the illusion of depth through...

Exposition : « Heavenly Earth : Images of Saint Francis at La Verna », Washington – The National Gallery of Art, du 25 février au 8 juillet 2018.

The Descrizione del Sacro Monte della Vernia (1612) depicts the monastery and dramatic rocky terrain of La Verna, the site where Saint Francis received the stigmata. The gifted baroque draftsman Jacopo Ligozzi was hired to illustrate the volume and he cleverly designed overslips pasted on 5 of the 22 engraved illustrations in a before-and­-after fashion to demonstrate the changes to the topography since Saint Francis’s time. Drawing on the Gallery’s holdings of Franciscan imagery, spanning the 15th...

Exposition : « Caravaggio: Masterpieces from the Galleria Borghese », Los Angeles – J. Paul Getty Museum, du 21 novembre 2017 au 18 février 2018.

Michelangelo Merisi, better known as Caravaggio (Italian, 1571—1610), forged a new path in the history of European painting. His bold, naturalistic style, which emphasized the common humanity of the protagonists in his works, was both highly admired and highly controversial among his contemporaries. The Galleria Borghese in Rome houses six paintings by Caravaggio, the largest gatherings of his works in a single collection. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience three masterpieces from this...

Exposition : « Genovesino. Natura e invenzione nella pittura del Seicento a Cremona », Cremona – Museo Civico Ala Ponzone, du 6 octobre 2017 au 6 janvier 2018.

Luigi Miradori, detto il Genovesino è il protagonista di questa mostra a Cremona, in un percorso diffuso che ha il suo cuore nella Pinacoteca del Museo Civico Ala Ponzone. Un pittore che viene descritto come un uomo “allegro, bizzarro e faceto” che, come fosse un personaggio dei suoi quadri, girava per la città con una berretta rossa in testa e la barbetta sul mento. Un autore che oggi è possibile scoprire attraverso le sue tele. Nei suoi quadri è...

Exposition : « Sacred Landscapes: Nature in Renaissance Manuscripts », Los Angeles – J. Paul Getty Museum, du 10 octobre 2017 au 7 janvier 2018.

  God is living, being, spirit, all verdant being, all creativity –Hildegard of Bingen In Renaissance Europe, many people looked to nature for spiritual inspiration and to guide their contemplation of the divine. In manuscripts created for personal or communal devotion, elements of nature—such as rocks, trees, flowers, waterways, mountains, and even the atmosphere—add layers of meaning to the illuminations, which were painted with careful observation of every minute detail. These landscapes remind readers to appreciate,...

Exposition : « Giovanni Bellini: Landscapes of Faith in Renaissance Venice », Los Angeles – J. Paul Getty Museum, du 10 octobre 2017 au 14 janvier 2018.

  Giovanni Bellini’s evocative landscapes are as much the protagonists of his paintings as are the religious subjects that dominated 15th-century Italian art. One of the most influential painters of the Renaissance, he worked in and around Venice, and while his landscapes are highly metaphorical, they also accurately reflect the region’s topography and natural light. Created for sophisticated patrons, Bellini’s works present characters and symbols from familiar sacred stories, set in a dimension of reality...

Exposition : « Bernini », Rome – Galleria Borghese, du 1er novembre 2017 au 4 février 2018.

Per celebrare i vent’anni dalla sua riapertura, la Galleria Borghese inaugurerà una grande mostra dedicata a Gian Lorenzo Bernini che si riallacci al discorso critico avviato con la mostra “Bernini scultore”, realizzata ormai vent’anni fa. La Villa, che contiene il nucleo più importante e spettacolare di marmi berniniani, è infatti la sede ideale per considerare l’insieme della produzione dell’artista e gli articolati problemi ad essa connessi. Il tema conduttore della mostra è dunque la scena privilegiata...
