We will commint our space at the fair to a carefull selection of artworks ranging from the early XVI century to the the late XVIII century, more information coming soon.
In the picture above, you can take a look at a detail extracted from one of the paintings we’ll exhibit at BIAF 2019. The event was painted by Giovan Battista Vanni (Pisa, 1599 – Florence, 1660) and depicts a countryside hunting scene nerby Barberino di Mugello.The canvas was probably realized around 1641-44.
In this detail, it is immediately identifiable the figure of Cardinal Giovan Carlo de’ Medici (1611-1663) who, while riding his horse, is caught glancing at the viewer. On the left, we can see another important figure, that of Monsignor Lorenzo Corsi (1601-1656), commisioner of the artwork and close friend of the Cardinal with whom he shared a great interest for collectionism and patronage of the arts.
