After the success of the exhibition “Raffaello Opera Omnia” at Guangzhou Library, another tribute to the great Master is about to be inaugurated in Southern China. Opening on April 29th at Shenzhen Nanshan Museum “Raphael and the Classical Canon: Masterpieces from the National Academy of San Luca” is the only exhibition with original works to reach China this year.
本次展览共展出 60 余件作品，其中来自意大利圣卢卡国家美术学院和翁布里亚国家美术馆的珍贵原作 39 件。拉斐尔、佩鲁吉诺、皮埃特罗·达·科尔托纳、卡诺瓦等大师的珍贵作品将首次与中国观众见面。
The exhibition features over 60 artworks on display, including 39 precious original artworks from the collection of the National Academy of San Luca in Rome and the National Gallery of Umbria. The artworks of Raphael, Perugino, Pietro da Cortona, Canova and other great masters will meet Chinese audience for the first time.
The exhibition is curated by Claudio Strinati, a worldwide acclaimed and famous art historian, art critic and Italian curator, with the aim of illustrating the classical artistic principles established by Raphael, one of the masters of the Italian Renaissance. The narration of his life and its development process show also the dissemination of classical canons and his influence on the classical artistic norms in addition to Raphael’s contribution to the history of architecture.
Among the masterpieces on display, the Putto Reggifestone is worthy of particular mention, since only this year, shortly before it was sent from Italy to China, was recognized as an authentic work by the Italian Renaissance Master.
This is the first exhibition of Italian original paintings in the South of China since the Covid. The opening of this prestigious exhibition is also a significant sign of the importance that Italy attaches to cooperate with Shenzhen to welcome the 2022 China-Italy Year of Culture and Tourism.
