The Mediciís Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th-Century Florence is the first exhibition in America devoted to the luminous and meticulously rendered paintings and drawings of Italian artist Carlo Dolci (1616Ė1687).

It provides an unprecedented opportunity to study the life and oeuvre of 17th-century Florenceís most important painter, whose reverence for detail, brilliant palette, and seemingly enameled surfaces earned the favor of powerful Medici patronage.

The Davis Museumís most ambitious old masters project to date, The Mediciís Painter includes over fifty autograph works, pictures of the highest pictorial, technical, and spiritual qualities, through exceptional loans from the worldís major museums and rarely seen works from private collections in the U.S.

and abroadóincluding the Uffizi Gallery and Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the Louvre Museum in Paris, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the J.

Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among others.

The exhibition travel for presentation at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University in fall 2017.

The Mediciís Painter is curated by Eve Straussman-Pflanzer, Head of the European Art Department & Elizabeth and Allan Shelden Curator of European Paintings at the Detroit Institute of Arts, with Francesca Baldassari, consulting curator.

A fully illustrated catalogue, distributed by Yale University Press, accompanies the exhibition.

Edited by Dr. Straussman- Pflanzer, the volume features essays by leading scholars: Francesca Baldassari, Edward Goldberg, Lisa Goldenberg Stoppato, Scott Nethersole, and Eve Straussman-Pflanzer.
