From 30 January to 13 June 2010, exhibition of Mattia Bortoloni’s paintings compared with other masters of the time, such as Piazzetta and Tiepolo.
An exhibition devoted to one of the most original XVIII century painters in Veneto: Mattia Bortoloni (1696-1750). Roverella Palace in Rovigo, from 30 January to 13 June 2010.
The exhibition displays a selection of the artist’s masterpieces, that are compared with works by other great artists of the time, such as Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, Giambattista Tiepolo and Antonio Balestra. Famous and much sought-after during his life, Bortoloni has then been forgotten, and considered only as one of the best among Tiepolo’s helpers.
During the last 20 years, in-depth studies have gradually revealed the artist’s greatness.
The exhibition is open Tuesday to Friday from 9 to 19, Saturday from 9 to 21 and Sunday and public holidays from 9 to 20. Closed on Mondays
