Neapolitan Baroque - NAPLES
Opening in conjunction with London Art Week, Colnaghi presents a special exhibition showcasing the enduring creative legacy of Old Master artists and artisans from Naples. Marking the first exhibition in London devoted to the Italian city and its arts in over forty years.
As the centrepiece of NAPLES, Colnaghi will, together with Dario Porcini, present a magnificent 18th-century crèche, known in Italian as a presepe, a monumental Nativity scene traditional to Baroque Naples.
The exhibition will also feature a selection of religious, landscape and still-life paintings by some of the greatest artists who worked in the city during the 17th and 18th centuries and served as inspiration for the craftsmen of the presepe, including Jusepe de Ribera, Luca Giordano, and Massimo Stanzione.
