Gold: Status and Glory Masterpieces from the Middle Ages and Today - A collaboration between Adrian Sassoon and Moretti : Moretti Fine Art - LONDON
2 - 31 May 2013
The timeless allure of gold will be celebrated in an exceptional exhibition entitled 'Gold: Status and Glory' and is the result of a collaboration between two dealers, Adrian Sassoon and Moretti Fine Art. It will be staged at Moretti Fine Art, 2a-6 Ryder Street, St. James’s, London SW1, from 2 to 31 May 2013. Fabrizio Moretti explained: “As a gallery specialising in Italian Old Masters, we are constantly confronted with the magnificence of gold. This exhibition is an opportunity to examine this highly prized material in the contexts of decoration, devotion and drama.” Gold: Status and Glory will present fifteen exquisite objects by the contemporary Italian goldsmith Giovanni Corvaja in the context of 14th and 15th century Italian gold-ground devotional paintings.
