Seduction and power - The woman in the art from Guido Cagnacci to Tiepolo
The imposing medieval Church of St. Francis, in the heart of Gualdo Tadino historical centre, opens its doors to unveil an irresistible and intriguing path, dominated by the woman who shows herself in her full seductive charm through emphatic gestures and naked lascivious bodies: it’s “Seduction and power - The woman in the art from Guido Cagnacci to Tiepolo”, the exhibition curated by Vittorio Sgarbi and open from the 30th July to the 3rd December 2017.
The exhibition offers an attractive range of the woman’s seductive power, by showing the different facets painted by Italian artists between the end of 1500 and 1700, by Simone Peterzano, the first master of Caravaggio in Milan, passing through Lionello Spada, Gioacchino Assereto, Mattia Preti, Luca Giordano, until Tiepolo.
Without ever sliding in the explicit tangle of bodies, the exhibited paintings coming from prestigious Italian and foreign private collections, from the Forlì Art Gallery of the Concordi Academy and from Art Collections of the Pesaro Savings Bank Foundation, represent women showing their most secret and intimate side of themselves and of their femininity, always aware of a power inherent in their own nature.
