De’ Visi Mostruosi and Caricatures: presentation of the exhibition to the press
On Wednesday, December 14, at noon, we will present to the public the next exhibition promoted and organized by the Giancarlo Ligabue Foundation, in the Sala Federiciana of the Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan: De’ Visi Mostruosi e Caricature. From Leonardo da Vinci to Bacon. 

The exhibition, curated by Pietro C. Marani, is opening on January 28, 2023 at Palazzo Loredan, seat of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere e Arti, in Santo Stefano, Venice. 

Marani – an art historian, Leonardo scholar, president of the Ente Raccolta Vinciana in Milan and a member of the National Da Vinci Committee – has selected seventy drawings and caricatures that cover from the early 16th century to the latter 20th century, from the Grotesque Head attributed to Da Vinci to a triptych by the Irish artist Francis Bacon. A major core of works exhibited includes the drawings of Giambattista Tiepolo from the Civic Art Collections at the Sforza Castle in Milan.

The exhibition will close on April 27.
