NICHOLAS HALL
17 East 76th Street, New York NY
November 2 – December 23, 2019 
Viewing by appointment 

 

Nicholas Hall is pleased to present a small selection of Lombard paintings at its gallery space on Seventy-Sixth Street in New York. The most famous exponents of the Lombard School are Leonardo and Caravaggio but this region generated a hugely rich culture of less familiar artists. Lombard art of the Renaissance and Baroque combines, in a very particular way, realism and the study of nature with an intense piety and spiritual content. This has its roots in local artistic traditions, the agenda of specific patrons such as Federico Borromeo and the dictates of the Counter Reformation. Works on view include paintings by Giampetrino, Giovanni da Maino, Fede Galizia, Giulio Cesare Procaccini, Daniele Crespi, Tanzio da Varallo, Il Cerano and Giacomo Ceruti. 

This by-appointment exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated scholarly catalogue, written by Dr. Virginia Brilliant, entitled Faithful to Nature: Eleven Lombard Paintings 1530-1760.
