The rediscovery of a work-of-art

“Fashion & art” is the credo of my Gallery and I am happy to emphasize it by hosting the tribute of the Griffoni polyptych.

The theme of the journey returned as a refrain in the claims that accompanied the images of the individual saints, who presented themselves clearly to the visitors of the Cavour Gallery, heralding their “return at home”: a concept that explicitly intended to recall the extraordinary history of altarpiece, dismembered during the eighteenth century to embellish the family’s country houses.

The individual panels entered in the art market during the nineteenth century: the 16 surviving panels, now owned by 9 international museums – from the Louvre in Paris to the National Gallery in London and Washington, from the Brera Art Gallery to the Vatican Museums – will exceptionally return together to Palazzo Fava thanks to the loans granted by the Museums, in an operation by Fabio Roversi-Monaco, President of Genus Bononiae.
