XV - XVIII century painting and sculpture

Caravaggio, masterpiece of the collections

14/04/2022

 

The collection includes the highpoint of the Bank’s artistic heritage, the moving, dramatic Martyrdom of Saint Ursula, thought to be Caravaggio’s last painting (1610).

The group of 17th to 18th century works is particularly prestigious, with pieces by Pietro da Cortona, Luca Giordano, Salvator Rosa, Bernardo Cavallino, Francesco Solimena and Artemisia Gentileschi.

Genre painting, portraits, still life, landscapes and urban scenes are particularly well represented, including magnificent canvases by Gaspar van Wittel.

Worthy of note for their quality and historical and artistic importance are the 16th century decorative cycles in the Cappella del Monte di Pietà, Naples, a series of 17th-century paintings from the ruined “Oratorio della Compagnia di San Paolo” in Turin and an impressive 18th century Neapolitan nativity scene.
