VIA BIGLI 11, MILAN
Located in the heart of Milan, the gallery has over the years registered a significant expansion of artistic proposals and exhibition arrangements, assuming a prominent role in the national and international collecting scene. Careful to diversify its offerings in order to provide antique enthusiasts with a wide selection of artworks and antiques, the selection curated by Giorgio Baratti Antiquario caters as much to the discerning collector as to the potential buyer with a cultural interest in antiques.
The proposed collection focuses largely on old paintings executed by Italian or foreign artists: the works, many of which are unpublished, depict mainly sacred, secular and mythological subjects. Also present are numerous portraits, still lifes and views.
In addition to paintings, the gallery houses High Period sculptures (in marble, metal, or wood) and furniture from the 16th to 18th centuries. Although the furniture selected and offered differs in period and geographical area, the rare Renaissance furniture deserves special mention.
Currently, the gallery is housed in the prestigious Palazzo Bigli Ponti, one of Milan's most important residences in which Bramante's architecture blends with painting from the first half of the 16th century, in the Luinesque style.
