Le Petit Palais has just opened its doors on a brand new show celebrating the work of Luca Giordano. The exhibition is titled “The triumph of the Neapolitan painting”, which gives an idea of how much the artist is revered by those working at the gallery.
This is a rare chance to see more of Giordano’s work than ever before in Paris.
This exhibition is a first for France as there has been no major retrospective of the artist’s work here before. Therefore, it is a rare chance for art lovers to get to know a little more about the artist as his work across the 17th century. Visitors will get to see around 90 pieces in total thanks to a collaboration with the Museo di Capodimonte and Museo del Prado in Naples, along with some of the major churches in the region. The collection gives viewers the chance to look at his techniques, style and themes in greater detail.
The exhibition is actually part of a much broader season of events at Le Petit Palais that focuses on the art and culture of the Naples region. This means a chance to not only get up close to the work of Luca Giordano but also to compare his ideas and approaches with other Neapolitan painters and artists. For example, following this show is an exhibition on the sculptures of Vincenzo Gemito, who worked much later in the city and died in 1929. Visitors are urged to enjoy all the shows in the series for a better understanding of Neapolitan art and the different works created.
Take advantage of the Naples season while you can.
The show for Luca Giordano just opened on the 14th of November 2019 and runs at Le Petit Palais until the 23rd of February 2020. This should allow for plenty of time to get up close with his paintings over the winter season. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity.
