Giacomo Ceruti: A Compassionate Eye
Jul 18, 2023 - Oct 29, 2023
Ticket: Free
In a group of remarkably haunting paintings by Italian 18th-century artist Giacomo Ceruti, beggars, vagrants, and impoverished workers are portrayed in mesmerizing realism, emanating a sense of dignity and emotional depth. Why were these subjects painted? Where and how were these works displayed, and for whom? At a time when severe inequalities continue to mark even the wealthiest societies, Ceruti’s work testifies to the enduring power of art to reflect our shared humanity.
