The exhibition Step by Step pays tribute to a remarkable Monegasque collection and its owner Fabrizio Moretti.From Friday 26 April to Sunday 29 September 2019, Nouveau Musée National de Monaco - Villa Sauber
The collection is being shown to the public for the first time in a selection of thirty-nine works, ranging from old masters to contemporary artists. The exhibition project explores what might be considered the private cosmogony of the collector, who has the eye of an art dealer working with paintings and sculptures on a daily basis. This personal, erudite journey takes us through six centuries of art history in an interpretation formulated by the curator Cristiano Raimondi.
This vast and highly diverse collection offers the Museum an opportunity to show very rare works, which constitute an exceptional compendium of Western artistic culture. Ranging from the Gothic period to the early Renaissance and on through Mannerism and the Baroque, the Moretti Collection takes us all the way to the experiments of the past decade. This is a unique, and highly diverse collection of masterpieces great and small. Austere, like the works of Spinello Aretino and Jannis Kounellis, alluring like the paintings of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Guido Cagnacci, and George Condo, and the works of superstars like Pontormo, Gerhard Richter, and Lucio Fontana.
