at Galleria Borghese, Rome

20 June - 15 September 2013


The famous Galleria del Lanfranco hosts seven works by the great artist portraying the original reconstruction of the Borghese collection, which was restored to its origins during the I Borghese e lʼAntico exhibition (December 2011 - April 2012, curated by Anna Coliva and Marina Minozzi for Galleria Borghese and by Jean-Luc Martinez and Marie Lou Fabréga-Dubert for the Louvre) which brought back to the Gallery the most important ancient art masterpieces that once belonged to the collection, mostly collected by Cardinal Scipione Borghese at the beginning of the Seventeenth century and currently making up the core of the Paris Louvre Museum antiques collection, following the sale imposed by Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte on his brother-in-law Camillo Borghese in 1807.
