- Alana Collection at Musée Jacquemart-André
In autumn 2019, from September 13, 2019 to January 20, 2020, the Musée Jacquemart-André will be focusing on the Alana Collection
In autumn 2019, from September 13, 2019 to January 20, 2020, the Musée Jacquemart-André will be focusing on the Alana Collection, one of the most precious and little-known private collections of Renaissance art in the world, which is currently located in the United States. Echoing its exceptional collection of Italian art, the Musée Jacquemart-André will hold an exhibition of more than seventy-five masterpieces by the greatest Italian masters, such as Lorenzo Monaco, Fra Angelico, Uccello, Lippi, Bellini, Carpaccio, Tintoretto, Veronese, Bronzino, and Gentileschi. This exhibition will give visitors a unique chance to admire for the first time pictures, sculptures, and objets d’art that have never been exhibited to the general public. In the tradition of all the greatest American collections, the Alana Collection is the fruit of a passion for art and an intensive selection process, adopted over several decades by Alvaro Saieh and Ana Guzmán; the combination of the couple’s forenames make up the name of the Alana Collection. Over the years, their passion has been transformed into a veritable fascination with Gothic art and the Italian Renaissance and has gradually led them to focus on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century paintings. These masterpieces have been exceptionally loaned to the Musée Jacquemart-André due to the two collectors’ passion for this period of art. The exhibited works attest to the enduring taste for the Italian Renaissance, considered as a founding stone of Western civilisation. They provide a comprehensive overview of one of the greatest collections of private art, from thirteenth-century painting to Caravaggesque works.
