The stories of Botticelli - Between Boston and Bergamo

Description

Next autumn, the city of Bergamo will once again amaze us, with a refined exhibition by Accademia Carrara, focusing on the great Renaissance master Botticelli.

At the centre, two works from the artist's maturity: The "Story of Virginia Romana" and the "Story of Lucrezia" two paintings on panel that link the Accademia Carrara to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.

Along with these paintings there are two other works by the master, preserved in the collections of Carrara, which are combined with other works of the highest level dedicated to the exploration of the pictorial universe and the Italian Renaissance artistic context.

The other two paintings on display are the Portrait of Giuliano de' Medici and the Vir dolorum. Both are part of the Carrara collection thanks to the donation by Giovanni Morelli.

Giuliano’s portrait can be admired alongside the marble bust that depicts him, coming from the Bargello Museum in Florence, along with the text by Paolo Giovio, Elogia virorum bellica virtute illustrium (Basel, 1575).

The Vir Dolorum will be exhibited along with the Crucifix of the Dell'Opera Museum from the Duomo in Prato.
