This Autumn, the Musée Jacquemart-André in Paris is presenting a major exhibition of works from the Alana colletion, one of the most prestigious private colletions of Renaissance art today. Formed over several decades by the Chillian-born collector couple Alvaro Saieh and Ana Guzmán (hence Alana, a combination of their first names), the collection is based in the United States and hitherto unseen by the general public. Curated by Carlo Falciani, Carl Brandon Strehlke and Pierre Curie, over seventy-five works by Italian masters of the 14th - 17th century will go on view, including paintings by Lorenzo Monaco, Fra Angelico, Paolo Uccello, Giovanni Bellini, Vittore Carpaccio, Agnolo Bronzino and Orazio Gentileschi.
