BETWEEN NEOCLASSICISM AND ROMANTIC SENTIMENT
AN INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION CELEBRATES TWO MAJOR ITALIAN ARTISTS
Two galleries and three events in the European capitals of art – Rome and Paris – for a single large travelling exhibition with an international tone, dedicated to the undisputed protagonist of Roman Neoclassicism, Vincenzo Camuccini, and his son Giovanni Battista, a sensitive interpreter of the romantic landscape painted en plein air.

at the Galerie Eric Coatalem, Paris

The Camuccini. Between Neoclassicism and Romantic Sentiment is the exhibition with which Antonacci Lapiccirella Fine Art of Rome and Maurizio Nobile Fine Art of Paris (which also have branches in Bologna and Milan) will be opening their new exhibition season. An event which unites not only these two galleries but also the prestigious European capitals that host them, where the neoclassical ideal was born and found fertile ground between the mid-eighteenth century and the early decades of the nineteenth century.
The exhibition will begin at the Antonacci Lapiccirella Fine Art Gallery in Rome.
In its second appointment, the exhibition will be hosted by the renowned Galerie Eric Coatalem,
as a part of the Fine Arts Paris international fair,
to then continue at the new Parisian location of Maurizio Nobile Fine Art Gallery.
The exhibition includes a selection of over fifty works through which the artistic story of the two Camuccini will be narrated.
Starting with Vincenzo’s long and glorious career, which led him to become one of the greatest exponents of European Neoclassicism, as well as a witness to one of the most intense periods in the history of Rome. The exhibition is also entrusted with telling the story of Giovanni Battista Camuccini’s landscape vocation – whose historical-artistic relevance reached beyond national borders, to the point that many of his works are kept in leading foreign museums, including the National Gallery in London, the Metropolitan of New York and the Toledo Art Museum – through a series of captivating views of the Lazio countryside.
Like many other painters dedicated to the plein air technique, Giovanni Battista was fascinated by the effects of light on lakescapes and by the warm-hued views typical of the Lazio countryside and, in strict adherence to Valenciennes’ precepts, he also devoted time to studying such naturalistic details as individual trees and plants, as documented by some of the paintings in the exhibition.
His activity as a landscape artist continued until the early 1850s, when he decided to abandon it and devote himself exclusively to taking care of his family affairs.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue published by SAGEP - Genoa.
