Brescia Musei opens Miseria&Nobiltà. Giacomo Ceruti nell’Europa del Settecento, the great exhibition dedicated to Giacomo Ceruti, known as “Pitocchetto“; the most important retrospective ever dedicated to the Lombard painter.
With over one hundred works by Ceruti and by artists who preceded or imitated him, the exhibition compares for the first time the most important masterpieces of the artist and beyond: paintings from sought-after private collections that are not normally accessible, large international museum loans , unpublished works and new attributions, offering an engaging and finally complete overview.
Painter of the latter and sought-after portraitist of the aristocracy, Ceruti is faced by the exhibition with what promises to be a “dutiful re-reading”, which widens the boundaries on the most “adventurous” painter of the eighteenth century. Original interpreter of his era, capable of giving shape to the contradictions of the society of the time, close to those of our days.
To learn more about the artistic figure of Pitocchetto, also in view of the trip, it is possible to participate on Friday 24 March at 20:45 in the Municipal Library, in the presentazione de Il silenzio della Lavandaia (in Italian only): the book by Paola Carmignani which tells the story of the great Lombard painter and the its special bond with the city of Brescia.
