MilanBernardo Zenale: St John Rediscovered
Dedicated to art historian Giovanni Romano (1939–2020), Marco Voena’s latest exhibition explores the vibrant artistic scene in Lombardy and Piemonte during the early Renaissance. The centrepiece of the exhibition is a recently rediscovered altarpiece by Bernardo Zenale of Saint John the Baptist, which had spent the past hundred years in a Benedictine monastery in Somerset. Curated by Stefania Buganza, the exhibition traces the altarpiece’s history, uniting two other works by Zenale as well as paintings of scenes from the life of Christ by his contemporaries, including Sperandio Cagnoli, the Master of the Cernuschi Pentecost and Martino Piazza da Lodi.
The gallery would like to thank PKB Privatbank and Cassa Lombarda for their support.
