TEFAF Maastricht 2019: a New Selection

TEFAF Maastricht 2019: a New Selection

Also this year, the Alessandro Cesati Gallery will exhibit at TEFAF Maastricht (March 16-24, 2019) for the 21st time, offering a new selection of important Sculptures and Works of Art in a two-rooms stand: the first room will be dedicated to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and the second to Baroque Era.

At the center of the first room of the stand, the Gallery will proudly present a little and extraordinary Sienese Casket of the mid-14th century, whose great importance has led to the publication of a dedicated book, with contributions by Prof. Andrea De Marchi and Dr. Chiara Guerzi: a treasure casket for small and precious objects, considered the oldest example among the so-called ‘pagoda-shape’ caskets, and attributed to a Sienese artist in the circle of the Lorenzetti brothers and close to Lippo Vanni.

Among the many stone sculptures, one will admire a charming Madonna of the Book by Cristoforo Mantegazza (Milan, 1429-1479) – one of the most important artists of the 15th-century Lombardy, and Galeazzo Maria Sforza favourite sculptor – whose provenance dates back to a famous and noble Italian collector of the second half of the 19th century. The work, of great gentleness and already known to scholars, has recently been restudied, recognizing in it a little masterpiece by this inspired Milanese sculptor.

One of the the absolute new entries of this year is an unpublished and very well conserved Triptych with Scenes from the Life of Christ, of large dimensions, by the Embriachi workshop, active in Florence and Venice between c. 1370 and 1430, specialized in bone and ivory carving.

As usual, a very fine selection of fine ironwork, such as doorknockers and locks, will also be presented to collectors.

In the second room, mainly dedicated to works from the Baroque period, collectors will admire an intense pair of large-sized ivory sculptures depicting the Virgin and Saint John, recently reattributed to the hand of Johann Balthasar Stockamer (circa 1634-1700), a well-known German ivory sculptor who spent many years in Italy working in Rome for Cardinal Leopoldo de’ Medici.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
