The scholar adds to the corpus of works by Cristoforo Solari (1470 ca - Milano, 1524), known as Il Gobbo or the Hunchback, three sculptures. The sculptures of St. John the Baptist and St. Paul that thanks to the recent restoration of the Altar of the Presentation situated in the south transept of the Milan Cathedral and to the new photographic campaign devoted to the statues adorning it, it is now possible to attribute to Solari and the statue of a Prophet, carved in marble from the quarry at Candoglia, a quarry owned – then as now – by the Fabbrica del Duomo.

The title of our exhibition – The Romance of History – is a big subject from which we aim to offer a small taste. All art represents artists’ personal history, their thought process, their inspiration, their heart, their place and time in the world. Yet some art captures moments in history in a particularly documentary fashion, allowing us to enter these moments and to feel history in the making.
The marble relief representing The Temptation of Adam will be on view at Trinity Fine Art during the London Art Week - 15 Old Bond Street - London (UK) - Tel: +44 20 7493 4916 - www.trinityfineart.com
