Louise GiovanelliManchester Art Gallery 5 Jun 2019 - 19 Apr 2020 Museums & Institutions New paintings by Giovanelli are shown alongside rarely-seen early Renaissance panel paintings from the collection of Manchester Art Gallery, as well as a selection of contemporary works by Victor Man and Mark Manders from the David Roberts Art Foundation and Tate.
Using Manchester Art Gallery’s The Crucifixion by the school of Buoninsegna di Duccio from the 14th century as her starting point, Manchester based painter Giovanelli has undertaken a major Arts Council England funded research project to visit early panel paintings and frescoes in Europe and the US. Artworks from this period by early Renaissance masters Duccio, Giotto and Piero della Francesca, as well as contemporary artists Mark Manders and Victor Man, have influenced her new collection of paintings and a selection of these artists’ works will be in dialogue with her canvases.
