The Musée du Louvre and the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg are joining forces for an outstanding exhibition based on the collection built up by the Marquis Campana mostly between the 1830s and the 1850s. For the first time since its dispersion in 1861, the exhibition will provide a comprehensive overview of the 19th century’s largest private collection. With over 12,000 archaeological objects, paintings, sculptures, and objets d’art, and comprising both ancient and modern artefacts, it was a rich, diverse collection of the highest quality. The exhibition will showcase over 500 works, including such masterpieces as the Sarcophagus of the Spouses and Paolo Uccello’s Battle of San Romano. It presents the romantic figure of Giampietro Campana, his passion for collecting, and how he brought together this extraordinary collection by way of excavations, the antique and art market, the network of collectors between Rome, Naples, and Florence, and his links with scientific institutions. The Marquis Campana aimed to represent Italy’s cultural heritage, both ancient and modern; as such, the collection was a founding moment in the affirmation of Italian culture during the Risorgimento—the emergence of the Italian nation in the 19th century.

Color woodcutting, known as chiaroscuro printmaking in Italy, was first practiced in Europe from the early 1500s to around 1650. It was the outcome of technical and artistic attempts to impart subtle nuances of color in printed form. Both an imitation of other art media—drawing first and foremost—and a medium in its own right, it circulated widely and attracted real interest from certain painters, who saw it as a new way to explore light and shade and experiment with monochrome. In a pioneering miscellany of examples from French collections (Musée du Louvre, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Fondation Custodia, École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Besançon) and institutions abroad (British Museum, Ashmolean Museum, Rijksmuseum), this exhibition will offer a chronological and geographic panorama of chiaroscuro printmaking via the most significant works of the leading masters of the Renaissance and European Mannerism, such as Peter Paul Rubens, Parmigianino, Domenico Beccafumi, and Hans Baldung Grien. Its sources include recent research into the pigments and watermarks used in printmaking, jointly carried out by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the Center for Research and Restoration of the Museums of France (C2RMF).
