In occasion of London Art Week, the Lampronti Gallery welcomes visitors to discover the wonderful exhibition, The Italianate Landscape: Travels of Northern artists in Italy. The exhibition brings forth a collection of paintings by artists such as Nicolas Poussin, Gaspar Van Wittel and many more, whose travels through Italy would fundamentally influence the course of their artistic formation. Initially accustomed to a more contained and reserved style inherent of Northern pictorial tradition, the contact with Italy and its intrinsic emotive spirit would bring an irreversible formative evolution and expressive completeness, characterised by a joyous fusion between the Northern technical precision and the forceful sentimental splendour of the Italian landscape.
The Lampronti Gallery specialises in Italian 17th and 18th Century Old Master Painting, with a particular focus on view paintings, landscapes and still lives, ranging from Caravaggio to Canaletto and their followers. The gallery participates in the most prestigious Old Masters fairs throughout Europe, such as the Biennale Internazionale di Roma and the Biennale Internazionale di Firenze, while abroad it showcases at The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF), Paris Tableau, Biennale des Antiquaires, Frieze Masters and Point Art Monaco. The gallery also collaborates with international museums and institutions in conducting research and providing loans for exhibitions. In January 2013, a new gallery space opened on Duke Street, St James’s, offering a window upon Italian art and culture in the heart of London.
