Giovanni Corvaja: Gold – Status and Glory
Moretti Fine Arts, 2a-6 Ryder Street, St. James's, London SW1Y 6QB
The timeless allure of gold will be celebrated in an exceptional exhibition entitled Gold: Status and Glory and is the result of a collaboration between two dealers, Adrian Sassoon and Moretti Fine Art. Fabrizio Moretti explained: “As a gallery specialising in Italian Old Masters, we are constantly confronted with the magnificence of gold. This exhibition is an opportunity to examine this highly prized material in the contexts of decoration, devotion and drama.”
Gold: Status and Glory will present fifteen exquisite objects by the contemporary Italian goldsmith Giovanni Corvaja in the context of 14th and 15th century Italian gold-ground devotional paintings.
