MONK’S ART GALLERY IN VOLTAGGIO
He studied and reproduced different works of the great artists of his time, taking his inspiration from the greatest Flemish artists, especially from Albrect Durer. In our Art Gallery we have one masterpiece of this great painter of Voltaggio: “Christ comforted by the angels”.
He joined the Capuchins’ Order when he was only 17 and strove for a devotional painting style, influenced by the mannerism of Lombardy.“Christ Carrying the Cross”, “St. Francesco”, “the Lamented Christ’s death” and other works of his shop are exhibited in the Art Gallery.
Domenico Fiasella , known as “the Sarzana” was trained to the painting by his father, since he was young and started his artistic life at the age of 16 with G. B. Paggi. The portrait “Sant’Antonio Abate contemplating the death of St. Paul the Hermit” in the Voltaggio Art Gallery, is evidence of his great and full creativity (second half of the 1620).
Also known as “Luchetto da Genova”, he was a painter and a sculptor. In 1583 he accepted to move to Spain near King Philip II Court to decorate the “El Escorial”. In the Art Gallery we have a “Deposition” and “St. Jerome”.
