In conjunction with the exhibition dedicated to the artist Bernardo Strozzi (1582/1644) “The conquest of colour” being held at Palazzo Nicolosio Lomellino, the Strada Nuova Museums offer a "path" dedicated to his work, showing a selection of some of the most characteristic works of one of Genoa's most famous and important seventeenth century painters: to name some, the Caravaggescan “Madonna with Child and San Giovannino”, his celebrated work “the Cook” and “the Piper”.
This path, designed by Raffaella Besta, Piero Boccardo and Margherita Priarone, includes twelve genuine masterpieces by Strozzi and best represents the artist's development and his thematic choices during his Genoese activity, before moving to Venice.
A large part of these paintings comes from the fabulous collection of the Brignole Sale family and entered Genoa's civic collection through the donation of Palazzo Rosso to the city in 1874.
Also on display is an important selection of drawings held by Palazzo Rosso's Drawings and Prints Department: precious papers, normally kept away from the light in the drawers of the museum's graphic collection, which are presented to the public for this unique occasion to reveal the immediacy of the creative process of the master, from the first fresh sketch on the sheet to the compositional idea of a painting or fresco.
A joint ticket is available with the exhibition at Palazzo Lomellino.
