Pietro Benvenuti in the Canova era

Exhibition June 17 − October 23, 2022

Uffizi Gallery holds an exhibition "Pietro Benvenuti in the age of Canova".

The exhibition features Benvenuti's paintings and drawings from his formative years through his years of academic success, his introduction as an "imperial painter" and a master in great demand by prominent patrons.

To mark the second century since the death of sculptor Antonio Canova, the exhibition explores the triumph of Neoclassicism in the very years when the Arezzo artist Pietro Benvenuti became one of the leading painters on the international scene.

Prepared according to the materials of the website Uffizi Galleries.
