Antonacci Lapiccirella Fine Art

Old Master Paintings and Drawings, 19th Century Paintings and Sculptures
1.jpg
1.jpg

Antonacci Lapiccirella Fine Art was founded in 2012 from the merger of two historic art galleries already present on the international market for several generations. Through targeted research and study, the gallery quickly consolidated its position to become a reference point for the fans of “Grand Tour” paintings, as well as drawings and sculptures from the late 18th to the first half of the 20th century.

Francesca and Damiano are tireless seekers of beauty, the unique, and the rare. Theirs is a decidedly eclectic approach, in which an aesthetic sense of great refinement makes their proposals particularly recognizable.

Over the years, the gallery has taken part in the most prestigious of antiques exhibitions such as the Salon du Dessin and the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris, Masterpiece London, and TEFAF New York; it also exhibits regularly at TEFAF Maastricht and at the International Biennial of Antiques in Palazzo Corsini, Florence. In the course of its activity, many of its works have joined major public collections such as the National Gallery in Washington, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the Polo Museale Fiorentino, the Capodimonte Museum in Naples, the Prague Museum, the Villa Mansi Museum in Lucca, the Fontainebleau Museum, the Hamburger Kunsthalle in Hamburg, the Musée D'Orsay, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Toledo Museum of Art, USA, as well as numerous private collections.

“Damiano and I are both children of art but with different educational backgrounds. What unites us is that we both grew up surrounded by beauty, by art, seeing our fathers’ emotion when making a purchase, the sense of wonder discovering an object or a painting. We intend to continue working in this way, following our instincts and letting ourselves be guided by the values of beauty, quality and rarity.”

FRANCESCA ANTONACCI, who hails from an old-established family of antique dealers that has been doing business in Rome since 1916. Studying in the school of Giuliano Briganti, she conducted research into Italian 17th century painting and built up her knowledge and experience with periods of study and work in Paris and London. She ran the family’s celebrated gallery in Via del Babuino for many years.

“The antiquarian is born a collector; he is born with the desire for possession. We buy what excites us, what we would like to have for ourselves, whose intensity, historical-artistic importance and quality we would be able to describe.”

DAMIANO LAPICCIRELLA went on to inherit the celebrated antique gallery founded by his father Leonardo in 1959 in Florence. After studying and working in London, he returned to Italy and took up the management of his family business, entering the gallery once again in the most important Italian and international trade fairs and focusing, in particular, on European painting and drawing from the 16th to the early 20th centuries.
