The exhibition takes place in the Italian city’s Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro from April 22-October 30 and is titled From Donatello to Alessandro Vittoria 1450- 1600: 150 years of Sculpture in the Republic of Venice.

Colnaghi is loaning three works to the show: the bust of San Lorenzo by Donatello (1440), Benedetto da Rovezzano’s St John the Baptist (c.1510) and Antonio Lombardo’s Death of Lucretia (c.1510).

Jorge Coll, CEO of Colnaghi, said: “I am delighted to bring Colnaghi’s Renaissance sculptures to a new audience of art lovers and collectors in the Ca’ d’Oro.”
