LA FORTUNA DI RAFFAELLO NELLE COLLEZIONI DEI MUSEI REALI

CULTURE & TRADITION
-
The exhibition aims to illustrate Raphael’s fortune in Piedmont and the dissemination of iconographic models inspired to his works between the first half of the 16th century and the end of the 19th century.
The first section of the itinerary is dedicated to the ancient copies of the Madonna d’Orléans, a famous early work now housed at the Condé Museum in Chantilly, documented in the early 16th century in the Savoy collections and replicated by some of the most important artists active in the Piedmont area, with a prestigious work loaned from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
The second section presents the results of the diagnostic investigations and the restoration work currently underway on the so-called Madonna della Tenda of the Savoy Gallery, where recently critics have recognized the direct intervention of Raphael, allowing to analyse in depth the history of the conservation of the work, also encouraging new reflections on its attribution. Also on display an interesting nucleus of works from the Galleria Sabauda that attest to the success of Raphael’s classical ideal in the years of Carlo Alberto and of the first directors of the Regia Pinacoteca.

The exhibition takes place inside the Galleria Sabauda.
