Pier Francesco Foschi (1502-1567) Pittore Fiorentino

Dates: 28 November 2023 to 14 April 2024

Curated by: Cecilie Hollberg

This exhibition revives and celebrates the once forgotten Renaissance artist, Pier Francesco Foschi. Born to a family of painters and groomed under Andrea del Sarto, Foschi's paintings highlight his innovative use of color, light and shadow. Eventually, Foschi began to contribute to the collections of renowned Florentine families like the Medicis and the Puccis.

The exhibition brings together over 40 autographed works of the artist, including the altarpiece, The Holy Family with Young Saint John the Babtist (1526-1530). The exhibition is divided into 5 segments, tracing his evolution as del Sarto's protege to his rise in fame, as evidenced by his later paintings and altar pieces.
