The show

While Giovan Battista Moroni’s portraits of Spini and his wife are on loan to the Frick Collection in New York for the exhibition Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture, the Museum is showing a selection of works by Gianriccardo Piccoli that offer a contemporary take on the portraits by the master of Albino.

Gianriccardo Piccoli transforms Moroni’s portraits into memory exercises; with the sitters abridged in the form of faceless silhouettes, with none of the details that distinguish them and that make them real, expressive personalities. The artist leaves it up to us to reconstruct the faces and the stories behind them, and to enter into a dialogue with the works and with our own memories, suggesting that we find time for calm, in-depth observation.
