We are delighted to be participating in the second edition of October Art Week, which will take place alongside TEFAF New York and Christie’s Classic Art Week.
We will be presenting a small exhibition of works by the Italian Baroque painter Carlo Maratti (1625–1713), the single most important Roman artist in the second half of the 17th century. Maratti was admired as an exponent of the grand classical style in the tradition of Raphael and Poussin, painting popes, altarpieces and works for foreign patrons including Louis XIV, King of France. Despite his art historical importance, there are very few paintings by Maratti in U.S. public collections and not one in the New York area. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see significant works by this great painter and will highlight the recent discovery of an early canvas painted for the Odescalchi family.
We will be hosting a reception on the night of the Art Walk on Thursday, October 26th, 5–9pm to celebrate the opening of the exhibition Paintings by Carlo Maratti.
Our doors will be open to the public through November 2nd, from 10am to 6pm daily.
