From 12 October
“Bernardo Bellotto 1740. A Journey to Tuscany”
curated by Bożena Anna Kowalczyk
exhibition design by Daniela Ferretti
The autumn exhibition of the Fondazione Ragghianti in Lucca, dedicated to the lofty Venetian painter Bernardo Bellotto (1722-1780), nephew of Canaletto, is at the same time a great exhibition event and a study exhibition. It represents a unique opportunity to admire some precious and rare works never seen together, including the most important painting in history having as its subject the city of Lucca, Bellotto’s masterpiece, and five of his drawings, always on Lucca, extraordinarily lent by the British Library.
A catalogue published by Silvana Editoriale and Edizioni Fondazione Ragghianti Studi sull’arte, edited by Bożena Anna Kowalczyk, with essays on the artist and his production in Tuscany accompanies the exhibition. New and unpublished historical and archival research, carried out for this exhibition, as well as the results of the most innovative analyses concerning the technique and procedures used by Bellotto for the realization of his paintings and drawings, are here put in comparison for the first time.
