Heures italiennes: La peinture de la Renaissance italienne conservée en Picardie
March 24, 2017 - July 2, 2017
Musée Condé, Domaine de Chantilly
The Domaine de Chantilly is proud partake in an unprecedented cooperation between several museums aimed at emphasizing the superb collections in the Picardy region located just north of Paris. Picardy is home to 500 major works of Italian art from the 14th to 18th centuries. However, due to their dispersion amongst various museums and historic sites, these superior ensembles have been overlooked and understudied. In order to fully recognize their pivotal role in Italian art, the Domaine de Chantilly instigated a partnership with more than a dozen institutions in the region to organize a four-part exhibition in four venues, with each show focusing on a specific period:
- 14th-15th centuries: Musée de Picardie, Amiens
- 16th century: Domaine de Chantilly
- 17th century: Musée de l’Oise, Beauvais
- 18th century: Palais de Compiègne
The Domaine de Chantilly will host the second leg of this collaborative initiative, focusing on the Italian Renaissance. Chantilly is an especially fitting venue as this era is particularly well represented in its permanent collection.
