New exhibition opens at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki
The Corsini Collection: A Window on Renaissance Florence opens Saturday 2 September at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki with a stimulating programme of special Italian events.
Drawn from the extensive private art collection of the eminent Corsini family in Florence, Italy, the exhibition features Renaissance and Baroque painting by renowned artists such as Botticelli, Caravaggio, Andrea del Sarto, Pontormo and Tintoretto.
