Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters

September 7, 2018 through January 6, 2019

The Morgan Library & Museum 225 Madison Avenue NY



At the end of the 1520s, at the time of the siege that brought to an end the last Florentine Republic (1529–1530), the painter Jacopo da Pontormo, (1494–1557) created one of his most moving and groundbreaking paintings, the altarpiece of the Visitation. The recent restoration of this masterpiece of Mannerist art has created the extraordinary opportunity for the work to travel for the first time from Carmignano (near Florence in Italy) to the United States.

Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters presents Pontormo’s spectacular altarpiece together with its preparatory drawing and with another masterpiece by the artist, the Portrait of a Young Man in a Red Cap (Carlo Neroni?). Pontormo painted this portrait of the handsome yet enigmatic young man during the same dramatic months of the siege of Florence. Believed to be lost, it has only  recently been rediscovered in a private collection in Europe.

Drawing in Tintoretto’s Venice

October 12, 2018 through January 6, 2019

The Morgan Library & Museum
225 Madison Avenue at 36th Street, New York


Jacopo Tintoretto (1518–1594) was among the most distinctive artists of the Italian Renaissance, but his drawings have never received the attention they deserve and remain unfamiliar even to many scholars. Drawing in Tintoretto’s Venice will be the first exhibition since 1956 to explore the drawing practice of this major figure of the Venetian Renaissance and will offer an entirely new perspective on Tintoretto’s evolution as a draftsman, his individuality as an artist, and his influence on a generation of painters in northern Italy.

Celebrating Tintoretto: Portraits Paintings and Studio Drawings

October 16, 2018–January 27, 2019

Jacopo Tintoretto was one of the preeminent Venetian painters of the sixteenth century, renowned for his monumental narrative scenes and his insightful portraits of patricians and citizens. In celebration of the five hundredth anniversary of the artist's birth, this exhibition explores an innovative and little-studied aspect of Tintoretto's portraiture: small-scale, informal portrait heads characterized by immediacy, intense observation, and startling modernity.

Metaphysical Masterpieces; 1916-1920: Morandi, Sironi, and Carrà
Annual Installation

19 October 2018 - 15 June 2019

CIMA Center for Italiam Moder Art

421 Broome Street, 4th Floor, New York


The exhibition is focused on a short period that ends the first phase of the avant-garde movements of Cubism in France and Futurism in Italy and blossoms into a new poetics, which will eventually lead to the “Return to Order” in the first years of the 1920s.

A major exhibition devoted to masterpieces of metaphysical art, with rarely seen works created between 1916 and 1920 by Giorgio Morandi, Mario Sironi, and Carlo Carrà, along with a key work by Giorgio de Chirico. Drawn primarily from the collection of the Pinacoteca di Brera, in Milan, as well as from other public and private collections, the exhibition includes works that have never before been seen in the U.S., and many brought together for the first time.
The term “metaphysical painting” (pittura metafisica) refers to an artistic style that emerged in Italy during the First World War. Closely associated with de Chirico, it often featured disquieting images of eerie spaces and enigmatic objects, eliciting a sense of the mysterious. Metaphysical Masterpieces concentrates on rarely seen early works by Giorgio Morandi and important paintings by the lesser- known artists Carlo Carrà and Mario Sironi, offering a richer and more nuanced view of pittura metafisica than previous exhibitions in the United States, creating a vivid portrait of the genre.

Luigi Valadier: Splendor in Eighteenth-Century Rome

October 31, 2018, through January 20, 2019

Frick Collection, New York

This fall, the Frick presents the first monographic exhibition devoted to one of the important figures of eighteenth-century Italian decorative arts, Luigi Valadier (1726–1785). He was a talented draftsman, designer, goldsmith, silversmith, and bronze founder, using precious stones as well as enamel, wood and glass, to create whimsical and elegant works of art for noble clients. Luigi Valadier: Splendor in Eighteenth-Century Rome will highlight Valadier’s oeuvre, presenting more than fifty objects as well as drawings that represent the breadth of his career.

Luigi inherited his father’s business in 1759, and his unsurpassed technical expertise combined with his aesthetic taste led to a career marked by the production of astonishing objects. He had a bustling shop and home, visited for more than twenty years by popes, aristocrats, and foreign sovereigns.





December 1-December 22

Opening Reception December 1 / 6-8 pm

M E N gallery, 13 Monroe St, New York


MEN gallery presents Mimmo Roselli’s Accordatura, the gallery’s first international collaborative exhibition with Castello 925, in Venice, Italy. Reknown Italian artist Roselli brings to the two galleries an installation that connects two cities with lines that are both real and  imaginary. As the title, translated into English as tuning, suggests, the cords are attuned to each other in a harmony, seemingly unattainable in our globalized existence. The artist makes his statement in defense of individual voices which, if attentive and accepting of each other, can exist in harmony. The title also addresses an element of the installation never before used by Roselli: the musical score.

Mimmo Roselli is an internationally recognized artist, whose work was exhibited in Europe, USA, South America and Asia. He has participated, in New York, at the inaugural exhibition of the Chelsea Art Museum, with "Sahmadi", and at the MOMA in ”The artist and the book in twentieth-century, Italy"; at the Chicago 4th International Congress of Educating Cities New York, 2016.  Roselli is also lauded around the world for his strong social commitment, including the Brazil project with the children of the favelas, art and music project in Bolivia with the Guaranì people, and Art in the Hospital. He is the curator of an International Festival of Arts held in a Guaranì Community of Bolivia, Santa Rosa.
