Baroque Brilliance

Kunsthaus Zürich , Heimplatz 1, 8001 Zürich
Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione was an Italian draughtsman and pioneering experimenter in printmaking who committed his compositions to paper with breathtaking nonchalance.
Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione unquestionably merits a prominent place in the pantheon of Italian draughtsmen. He commits his compositions to paper with a breathtaking nonchalance almost unparalleled among Baroque artists. At the same time, he is a pioneering experimenter in the field of printmaking. The monotype process which he developed was still being used in the 19th century by artists such as Edgar Degas and Paul Gauguin. The Kunsthaus Zürich is now devoting a solo show to this virtuoso of art on paper, looking in particular at his relationship with his great role model, Rembrandt.
