Under the sky of Egypt

Masterpiece by Francesco Hayez found in a private collection

The exhibition, entitled "Under the sky of Egypt" will be inaugurated the 9th of November and will be visitable until the 24th of February 2019. It is dedicated to the extraordinary Rest during the escape to Egypt painted by Francesco Hayez in 1831, a painting hidden from the public's eyes since that year, when it was exhibited in Milan, at the Accademia di Brera. Recently traced by the curator of the exhibition Emanuela Rollandini in a private collection, it was commissioned by Simone Consolati, a well-known patron and lover of Fine Arts. Symbol of aesthetic choices that act as a driving force for the widespread taste in Trentino in the romantic age, the work is one of the most beautiful works of art representing the escape of the Holy Family. In the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the exhibition is an opportunity to recount the virtuous relationship between the Museum, the Superintendency for Cultural Heritage of the Autonomous Province of Trento and the farsighted collectors, who, working together, have created a shared project of protection, research and development.
