Drawings from the Louvre Museum: “The Italian Renaissance”

For the first time, an exhibition entirely organized by the Louvre Museum and made up of several artworks coming from its own collections will take place in Florence.

 

The exhibition, supported by the Ministry of Cultural Activities and Heritage and by the City of Florence will take place at the Museum of Casa Buonarroti until September 14th.

 

Tourists will have the opportunity to marvel at an extraordinary exhibition of the highest level, with more than 90 pieces never shown before which were donated by the rich Edmond de Rothschild to the Louvre Museum in the thirties, among which the Dèpartement des Arts Graphiques selected many works belonging to the Italian Renaissance.

 

But what makes this event even more significant is the original collocation of the works in the halls. In the opening hall in fact, visitors will find International Gothic drawings of stunning elegance which will enchant spectators because they will all be visible from both sides.

 

The most important area in the Museum is with no doubt the one dedicated to the drawings which date back to the 15th and 16th centuries, works created by such masters as Pisanello, Leonardo and Raphael.

 

Don’t miss the chance to marvel at the works belonging to one of the most famous museums in the world, now in the wonderful city of Florence.

 

Visit the Buonarroti Museum, you won’t regret it!
