Brescia, Palazzo Martinengo, Via dei Musei 30 – until 9 June 2019


Until the 9th June 2019 the halls of Palazzo Martinengo will be housing the great exhibition “Gli Animali nell'Arte dal Rinascimento a Ceruti”, or Animals in Art, from the Renaissance to Ceruti, curated by Davide Dotti, with the sponsorship of WWF ITALIA.

This is the first exhibition on this fascinating and very current topic to ever be organised in Europe: more than eighty works of art from public and private collections all over the world show how our animal friends have always been protagonists in the History of Italian Art.

The exhibition itinerary – divided into ten sections dedicated to dogs, cats, fish, reptiles, insects, farm animals, exotic animals, animals in mythology and sacred painting – will allow the public to enjoy an emotional journey through three centuries of the History of Art, admiring works by great masters who, with unparalleled aesthetic sensitivity, painted animals of every species with great attention to defining the anatomical characteristics of every single breed, to capture even the most subtle temperamental nuances. A relationship, between man and animal, that the most celebrated artists of all time have eternalised in paintings of breath-taking beauty, and that this surprising exhibition wants to rediscover and bring to the attention of modern society. For the joy of lovers of Art and of Animals!

The exhibition is open to the public at the following times:

- from Wednesday to Friday from 9:00 am until 5:30 pm

- Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm
