Praise for the exhibition
“Although Castiglione is a big name in seventeenth-century Italian art, even fans of the period might have trouble associating him with a particular artwork. One of the most technically accomplished draftsmen of the Baroque period, he has unaccountably fallen from recognition in the modern era. But this exhibition, provocatively subtitled ‘Lost Genius’ seeks to correct that oversight. . . . Taken together, the works in this splendidly conceived exhibition demonstrate that Castiglione was a major figure in art history.”
