Florence and the Baroque: Paintings from the Haukohl Family Collection

Feretti Arlecchino ImageGiovanni Domenico Ferretti, Harlequin and his Lady (detail), n.d. Oil on canvas, 23 5/16 x 19 1/2 in. Haukohl Family Collection.

NOVEMBER 5, 2011 - FEBRUARY 12, 2012

In the 17th century, Florentine artists created a newly reformed Baroque style characterized by the portrayal of intense emotion, saturated color, and refined brushwork, which brought drama to mythologies, biblical subjects, and devotional works. This exhibition, drawn from the largest collection of Florentine Baroque painting in the United States, features works by key artists such as Jacopo da Empoli and Francesco Furini. The colorful exuberance of Giovanni Domenico Ferretti's Harlequin and his Lady (seen right) is one example of the many facets of Baroque Florence.
