• Giuseppe Cades (1750-1799)

    The Invention of History

Born and educated in the stimulating Roman artistic scene, Giuseppe Cades (1750-1799) was one of the most talented and multi-faceted artist of his generation. Trained as a history painter and having learned from the masters of the different generations that preceded him, his personal way of evoking the past — more personal and emotional than that of his contemporaries — was pioneering and paved the way for 19th century painters. This exhibition presents part of the remarkable collection of graphic works belonging to the MNAA, acquired in Rome by Domingos António de Sequeira after the death of Cades and offered to Ermelinda Allen in 1827.
