PAINTINGS DESCEND THE STAIRS. SMALL TREASURES FROM THE DEPOSITS FINALLY VISIBLE TO THE PUBLIC Ph. N. Ara ©​ Galleria Borghese​

For about a month, from January 4th to February 7th, 2022, Galleria Borghese will inaugurate the initiative “Paintings descend the stairs” to show small treasures that do not find a daily place in the exhibition layout and are kept in the deposits of the museum, located above the exhibition floors and currently not accessible to the public.

About fifteen works in rotation, will enrich the exhibition. Small paintings with figures and landscapes, on canvas or board, but also copper, mainly from the Flemish school, but not only.

Or The Three Graces, an oil on canvas work already attributed to Francesco Vanni and Rutilio Manetti, and recently returned to the hand of Ventura Salimbeni. The work represents a landscape embellished with profiles of light, in the manner of Paul Brill, in the center of which are depicted the three Graces, Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia, according to Greek and Roman mythology, gods linked to the cult of nature and vegetation, or, according to the neoplatonic vision, the three faces of Love, Chastity, Voluptuousness and Beauty, linked to the cult of Venus-Aphrodite.
