ITALIAN PAINTING

The collection of Italian painting of the Brukenthal Museum has approximately 220 works, offering a remarkably varied presentation of the most important artistic currents: Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque and Rococo.
A particular interest in the Venetian school is shown through the numerous works produced in the artistic environment of Venice, enjoying the reception of many outside influences, allowing painters (Paris Bordone, Jacopo Negretti, Paolo Veronese, Francesco Maffei, Johann Carl Loth, Giovanni Battista Langetti, Sebastiano Riccci, Guido Cagnacci) to develop an individual style, whose mainstays were light, colour and the use of a fine brushstroke.
In the Rome of the late 16th century and early 17th century, one of the fundamental tendencies was the naturalism of Caravaggio. One of the artists, who worked in Caravaggio’s workshop, was Antiveduto Gramatica.
Massimo Stanzione was instrumental in introducing Caravaggism to the school of Bologna.
The first important representative of Classicism was Annibale Carracci, powerfully influencing painting throughout the 17th century, being promoted especially by artists in Emilia Romagna.
The Neapolitan Baroque was able to support its inclination for Classicism by the availability of a large pool of models, offered by the diggings at Pompeii and Herculaneum, undertaken in the 18th century, as also illustrated in Giacomo del Po’s work.
