Intro
(...) In this exhibition, Studio GR.20 focuses on gold, a material traditionally linked to jewellery and, for centuries, also used in the technique called fondo oro: Guariento was an expert in painting gold on wood, and is famous for his Heavenly Host. (...)
Within the ambit of the important exhibition devoted to Guariento and Padova under the Carrara Seigneurs, which the Department for Cultural Affairs of the City of Padova is organizing in 2011 in separate museum buildings (Palazzo del Monte, Eremitani City Museums, Palazzo Zuckermann, Diocesan Museum, Petrarch's House at Arquà Petrarca), Studio GR.20 presents its own exhibition of contemporary jewellery, in homage to Guariento di Arpo, the great 14th-century painter.
In this exhibition, Studio GR.20 focuses on gold, a material traditionally linked to jewellery and, for centuries, also used in the technique called fondo oro: Guariento was an expert in painting gold on wood, and is famous for his Heavenly Host.
