Pietro da Cortona – neglected Italian Renaissance painter, along with other Baroque Masters on view in Lecce. Do yourselves a favor and watch the youtube video in full screen.

UPDATE: All we said about Pietro Da Cortona’s notable talents and masterful abilities is true… except that the painting below of the woman holding a palm branch and a sword is Santa Catalina – and the painter is Murillo. Thank you Alexandro for bringing this to our attention.

You can see Pietro da Cortona’s works in Cortona, his hometown, and currently in a show in Lecce, in Aricce.

This coming Saturday, the 22nd of September at 7pm in the ‘Palazzo Ducale dei Costromediano di Cavallino” in Lecce.  On view are Dipinti del Barocco romano da Palazzo Chigi – masterpieces of the Italian Seicento, – among which  Giovan Battista Gaulli, Ferdinand Voet, Francesco Trevisani, Giuseppe Cesari, aka “il Cavalier d’Arpino,” Giovanni Battista Salvi, aka “il Sassoferrato,” Carlo Maratti, Viviano Codazzi, Mattia Preti, Salvator Rosa, Pier Francesco Mola, Pietro da Cortona, Andrea Pozzo aaaand Gian Lorenzo Bernini. 

We invite you to see some MORE of Signor Cortona’s paintings and murals in the youtube video, below – I hope that you will consider playing it FULL SCREEN.

    • Dear Alexandro, thank you for bringing to our attention that the painting you mention is in fact not by Da Cortona, but rather it is Bartolomé E. Murillo’s Saint Catherine, (1650) Fundación Focus-Abengoa. Gracias!
