Transformations, our focus for MDNY 2019, explores drawings with subjects that hold narrative emotional weight and how appreciators of art might experience a work differently over time. We hope to illustrate specific ways that those dedicated to the evolving discipline of Art History have shaped our understanding of works in our keeping and how we as gallerists have been transformed by their disciplined life. Those visit us can expect to see works by Bernardino Mei, Carlo Bononi, Paolo de Matteis, Aureliano Milani, Pietro Antonio Novelli, Ubaldo Gandolfi, Charles-Joseph Natoire, Bernard Picart, as well as others not so clearly understood. This year provides the unusual opportunity to see how works of art are transformed by the space in which they hang. We’re grateful to Katherine Deign for allowing us the privilege of exhibiting at Kraushaar.

  PAOLO DE MATTEIS,  Philip and the Ethiopian

PAOLO DE MATTEIS, Philip and the Ethiopian

"Now an angel said to Philip, “Go south to the road—the desert road—that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza. So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopian eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of the Kandake (which means “queen of the Ethiopians”). This man had gone down to Jerusalem to worship, and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the Book of Isaiah the prophet. The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.”

Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked.

“How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me.”++

Ceres…ac eleifend. Phasellus a pellentesque purus, sit amet dignissim dolor. Morbi sit amet finibus justo. Mauris neque ipsum, posuere id faucibus sed, consequat sit amet turpis. Proin interdum rutrum orci quis venenatis. Quisque ante odio, vulputate quis sagittis in, vestibulum non tellus. Morbi ut sollicitudin tellus. Mauris ac egestas mi, sed accumsan turpis. Nulla laoreet pellentesque maximus. Pellentesque ut congue ipsum. Maecenas neque velit, fermentum non nunc id, molestie sollicitudin lectus.
