Luca Giordano exhibition at Petit Palais

From November 14, 2019 until February 23, 2020 the Petit Palais presents a retrospective dedicated to the Neapolitan painter Luca Giordano


Petit Palais

From 14 November 2019 until February 23, 2020, the Petit Palais presents the first ever retrospective in France of works by the Neapolitan painter Luca Giordano (1634-1705), one of the most brilliant artists of the European 17th century. The exhibition highlights the exceptional virtuosity of this illustrious Seicento painter with nearly ninety works, monumental paintings and drawings, assembled thanks to exceptional loans from the Museo di Capodimonte, Naples, the main churches in Naples and numerous European institutions, including the Museo del Prado. Following the exhibition of works by the sculptor Vincenzo Gemito (1852-1929), this retrospective is part of the season that the Petit Palais is devoting to Naples this autumn in partnership with the Museo di Capodimonte. The exhibition brings out the contrast between such tortured compositions as The Crucifixion of Saint Peter (Giordano’s and Mattia Pretti’s), The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian (by the same artists), the horrific Apollo and Marsyas (Giordano’s and Ribera’s) and, in a sensual register inherited from Titian, the languorous figures of Venus, Ariadne Abandoned and Diana and Endymion. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm, night visit until 9pm on Friday.
Address: Avenue Winston Churchill 75008
