11th October 2019 – 12th January 2020
The outstanding exhibition at Palazzo Lomellino is celebrating Bernardo Strozzi, one of the most well-known Genoese painters of the baroque generation, and the 15th year since the opening to the public of the rooms decorated with his frescoes. These frescoes depict the connection between the Centurione Family and the discovery of the New World.
The unparalleled painter belonged to the generation of Caravaggio whose influence is fairly detectable in the selected works on exhibit, mainly from private collections. Strozzi's expressive paintings on exhibit are powerful also thanks to his skilled use of colours. There also are a few formal portraits of Genoese noble elite influenced by Flemish painters, such as Pieter Paul Rubens.
