A Window on Italy – The Corsini Collection: Masterpieces from Florence

24/02/2018 - 18/06/2018 A Window on Italy – The Corsini Collection: Masterpieces from Florence

A city. A family. A collection of magnificence. Introducing the private collection of one of Florence’s most eminent families, the Corsini family. Featuring Renaissance and Baroque paintings by artists such as Botticelli, Tintoretto, Caravaggio and Pontormo – these extraordinary works of art have been preserved over centuries, surviving the devastation of World War II and the great flood of Florence. This personal collection includes portraits, landscapes, mythological and religious paintings, plus fascinating decorative objects and furniture from the Palazzo Corsini. Leaving the city it’s called home for 600 years, this is the first time this collection has toured outside of Italy and will be the only showing in Australia. Experience for yourself this uniquely visual history of passion, fortune, and survival at the Art Gallery of WA from 24 February to 18 June 2018.
