Detailed description :Luca Cambiaso

Luca Cambiaso

Author(s): Federica Mancini

€ 20.00 tax included

Renowned during his lifetime for the decoration he painted in sumptuous Genoese palaces, Luca Cambiaso was one of the first artists whose graphic works spawned the interest of great collectors, including those outside of Italy.

This exhibition presents some fifty drawings by the artist and his school from the Louvre's Department of Prints and Drawings. Their diversity reveals the art of a great innovator, who first set his gaze on Michelangelo and Perino del Vaga, then Correggio and the late Venetians. It brings to light a dazzling artist with quick and confident strokes, and helps gain a better grasp of what function drawing fulfilled for Cambiaso, his assistants - he trained a number of artists - and his followers. It reveals the imagination of an artist whose graphic inventions held such fascination for twentieth-century creators.
