Presenting many previously unexhibited works, this catalogue thoroughly reevaluates the career and oeuvre of Swiss-born Lombard artist Petrini (1677-ca. 1759), a late Baroque painter influenced by Piazzetta whose allegories, portraits and interpretations of biblical subjects are distinguished by their expressive intensity. Features fine full-page reproductions of 72 paintings accompanied by lengthy scholarly commentaries and eight well-illustrated essays examining the course of Petrini's stylistic development, his activities in Switzerland and Italy, the cultural context of his commissions and the critical reception of his work.
