Presented by Xavier F. Salomon, Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, The Frick Collection
Guido Cagnacci, whose Repentant Magdalene is the focus of the special exhibition, was one of the most eccentric painters of seventeenth-century Italy. This lecture tracks his turbulent life and career by following his footsteps from his native Romagna to Venice and finally to Vienna. While researching the exhibition, curator Xavier F. Salomon visited the cities where the painter lived and worked, and his talk provides a window into the artist’s fascinating world.Buy tickets/get more info now
