Driven by his passion for Italian art from Renaissance to Baroque, Maurizio Canesso has dedicated the last thirty years of his career to discovering and rediscovering masterpieces as well as giving them a new life, before they are offered to international clients, both private and public. He founded his Paris gallery in 1994 in the 9th arrondissement, in the heart of the Hôtel Drouot neighbourhood.
The Canesso gallery organizes ambitious exhibitions, often in collaboration with other institutions, and accompanied by their own publications. In 2010, the exhibition on the Master of the Blue Jeans (2010) was one of the gallery’s most original contributions, among others.
The gallery seeks to stand by collectors on an exclusive, long-term basis, offering paintings that are appreciated internationally. Its close collaboration with art historians and museum curators attests to success with public institutions throughout the world (The National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; The National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and in France, the Musée du Louvre, among others).
The Gallery will host in Paris the exhibition Love for Art from October 1st, 2020 until November 20th, 2020. Each painting presents a different vision of love - merry, violent, poetic or erotic. Through the representation of love, the exhibition celebrates the passion for art shared by painters, collectors and amateurs. The gallery is opened from 10am to 6pm by appointment.
