The Cinquecento of Caravaggio and Raphael on display at the San Domenico Museums … and in our ceramic workshop!
31 January 2018 · Categoria Artistic ceramics
“The Eternal and the time between Michelangelo and Caravaggio” is the new exhibition of the San Domenico Museums in Forlì to be held from 10 February to 17 June 2018 in the convent church of San Giacomo Apostolo, freshly restored. The Cinquecento, a century that saw the dawn of the Renaissance and the appearance of a new current, Mannerism, as well as Michelangelo and Caravaggio, will be Rahpael, Parmigianino, Vasari and many others (the list is very long!).
After having filled your eyes with the wonderful works of these artists of the sixteenth century, we invite you to rediscover the same atmosphere by visiting our exhibition of artistic ceramics. The bond between the ceramists and the painters was solid from the beginning, as demonstrated by the works of the great Xanto Avelli (1486-1542), whose ceramics bear the marks of masters of the period such as Raphael, Mantegna and Parmigianino.
We at La Vecchia Faenza, like Xanto Avelli, also have our reference painters who are a source of continuous inspiration. As shown in the painting at the center of this dish, taken from the “Boy bitten by a lizard” by Caravaggio.
