Il Gesù Bambino di Pintoricchio, due dipinti a confronto
A very special Christmas gift to all visitors from Roma Capitale, thanks to two special loans from the Fondazione Guglielmo Giordano and the Fondazione Sorgente Group: the exhibition of two paintings by Pinturicchio in the Capitoline Museums.
The exhibition of the two paintings by Pintoricchio celebrates Christmas and reminds all the enthusiasts of the delicate figure of the sensitive Umbrian painter, who was born in Perugia sometime between 1455-56 and died in Siena in 1513. The two works of art both belong to Foundations. A fragment of fresco with the figure of a Blessing Baby Jesus (property of the Guglielmo Giordano Foundation) stands alongside a small but precious panel depicting the Madonna with Blessing Child (property of the Sorgente Group Foundation, Institute for Art and Culture).
