About the exhibition
From Cosimo and Lorenzo de’ Medici to Edmond de Rothschild, many of the greatest patrons and collectors of all time were great bankers. These were personalities who made an incisive mark on the history of collecting and taste. Through their portraits, testimonies of their exceptional biographical events and above all some exemplary works of art from their collections, it is possible to recall their figure and collecting choices.
Spanning a time from the Renaissance to the 20th century, the exhibition at Gallerie d’Italia-Milano presents works by artists such as Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Bronzino, Verrocchio, Antoon Van Dyck, Angelika Kauffmann, Hayez, Gherardo delle Notti (Gerrit van Honthorst), Valentin de Boulogne and Giorgio Morandi.
The over 120 works on display come from the most prestigious international museums such as the National Gallery in London, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Albertina in Vienna and The Morgan Library & Museum in New York.
