Introduction

TEFAF 2016

 

ROBILANT+VOENA celebrate over sixteen years of exhibiting at TEFAF Maastricht, with solo presentations of two artists highly representative of the gallery’s program over the years - Gaspar van Wittel (1652-1736) and Lucio Fontana (1899-1968).

Gaspar van Wittel known as ‘Vanvitelli’, played a pivotal role in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, in the development of topographical paintings, known as vedute. Originally from Holland, he moved to Rome in 1674, where he made a career and resided until his death. Gifted with a profound understanding of perspective and architecture, he became the first known of the view painters or vedutisti, producing a spectacular variety of representations of Italian cities that are accurate, precise and detailed.
