Moretti Fine Art, with galleries in galleries in Florence, New York and London, will be exhibiting at Frieze Masters (Stand D1), staged on Gloucester Green in Regent’s Park, London, from 17 to 20 October 2013. Fabrizio Moretti, a member of the Selection Committee for Frieze Masters, said: “After the fair’s success last year, Moretti Fine Art is thrilled to participate in the second edition of Frieze Masters. We plan to exhibit high quality pieces that underline the timeless character of truly extraordinary Italian Old Masters”. The 2013 fair will feature some 120 of the world’s leading galleries in ancient to modern art from fifteen countries. Coinciding with, and within walking distance of, Frieze London, the two fairs will make the city the focus of the international art market in October.
Amongst the fine paintings to be shown by Moretti will be God the Father sending the dove of the Annunciation by Giovanni di Marco (1385-1437), also known as Giovanni dal Ponte. At one time, this panel was the crowning piece of a larger work. At a later date, probably towards the end of the 18th century, it was inset within an engraved, gilt, square panel; the ensemble then inserted into a coeval Roman frame.
