Renaissance from Paris to Florence
from 06/09/13 to 31/12/13
The origin of this exhibition at Villa Bardini is the story of a famous antique dealer, Stefano Bardini, the wealthy and cultured French collectors Edouard André and his wife Nélie Jacquemart, but it is also the story of two museums: the Museo Jacquemart-André Museum in Paris and the Bardini Museum in Florence.
The Renaissance from Florence to Paris. Round trip is a title which suggests the contacts and exchange between the two cities thanks to these three extraordinary personalities. Located in a panoramic position overlooking the beautiful garden and the city, the Villa is the ideal venue for the exhibition of the Renaissance masterpieces of the great masters Botticelli, Donatello, Mantegna, Paolo Uccello, which come back to Florence from the Jacquemart-André Museum.
