Moretti Fine Art will stage their third US exhibition, entitled From the Gothic Tradition to the Early Renaissance, at their gallery at 24 East 80th Street, New York, from 19 January to 12 February 2010. Some twenty works will not only reveal the richness of gold-ground and panel painting, but also draw attention to the works of great early Italian masters who have been hitherto underappreciated.
The strong sales performance of Old Master paintings, in an otherwise challenged art market, has confirmed the enduring value of this category of art in Moretti's timely exhibition.
The majority of Italian pictures, created during the Middle Ages, were intended for devotional use, commissioned by private individuals or the Church, and this exhibition will show how their spiritual significance still resonates with viewers today.
