Early Italian Art (1100-1500) in Amsterdam, which runs from June 4-13 at the Morsink Icon Gallery on the Keizersgracht, features pieces dating from the Middle Ages and early Renaissance.
Highlights include a Gothic diptych with verre églomiséfrom the famous collection of Baron Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, a silver betrothal belt from 15th century Milan and the two altar panels of St Andrew and St John painted in the 1410s by the Sienese artist Martino di Bartolomeo, pictured above. Prices range from €10,000- 250,000.
“We would like to illustrate the opulence and forcefulness of this early Italian art. This period was formative for the development of art in all of Europe in the following centuries, it is fascinating,” says dealer Erik Bijzet.
