MICHELE DI RIDOLFO DEL GHIRLANDAIO, portrait of a man

Based on this news I’d say the Chinese LOVE Italian painting. The exhibit From the Collections of the Uffizi Gallery. The Genres of Painting: Landscape, Still Life & Portrait Paintings opens this week in Changsha at the Hunan Provincial Museum opens November 30th 2010. In Shanghai and Wuhan the traveling show drew 850.000 visitors. Some rather good quality works (check out the beautiful photos below) have been sent and it’s nice to know that some people in these more remote areas will have the chance to experience Italian art in person.
