After Kandinsky, Vrubel', Jawlensky and Russian artists in Genova and the Rivieras, the new exhibition "Grande pittura genovese dall’Ermitage: da Luca Cambiaso a Magnasco" represents the second important stage of the great Genoa - Saint Petersburg project, (which will end in autumn with the exhibition “Genoese paintings and drawings from the ‘500s to the ‘700s that will be set up at the Hermitage) and once more underlines the tight cooperation between Genoa and Saint Petersburg and particularly between Palazzo Ducale and the great museum of the Hermitage.
The show, organised by Svetlana Vsevoložskaja and Irina Grigorieva, keepers of the Hermitage, with the collaboration of Piero Boccardo, manager of the Galleria di Palazzo Rosso in Genoa, first of all offers a collection of paintings and drawings, all of very high quality, even if, not rarely, little known in Italy.
Works cover a period of time included between the 16th century and the 18th century with high quality paintings of Luca Cambiaso, Bernardo Strozzi, Gioacchino Assereto, G.B. Castiglione "Il Grechetto", Anton Maria Vassallo, Valerio Castello, G.B. Langetti, Peter Muller "Il Tempesta", G. Agostino Cassana, Peirano "Genovese", Alessandro Magnasco and drawings by Luca Cambiaso, Lazzaro Tavarone, G. B. Paggi, Giulio Benso, G. G. Castiglione "Il Grechetto", Valerio Castello, Bartolomeo Biscaino, Domenico Piola, Giň Andrea Carlone, Alessandro Magnasco. Also shown a rare drawing by Charles De Wailly which enables the vision of the decorative system of Palazzo Campanella in Via Garibaldi which was lost during the last war.
