Exhibiton presentation of Self-portraits. Homage to Rosalba Carriera in the presence of artist Lilla Tabasso and author Xavier F. Salomon
Event organised by
The volume presents a work by Lilla Tabasso (Milan, 1973) inspired by the last, superb self-portrait of the famous painter Rosalba Carriera (Venice, 1673 - 1757), which is housed at the Gallerie dell'Accademia. The glass work, accompanied in the publication by a text by Xavier F. Salomon, is composed of different botanical elements such as the laurel - which, in the painting, encircles Carriera's head -, the variety of rose known as Alba - hence, the name Rosalba - and the lilac - Tabasso's favourite flower.
To accompany the book presentation, the gallery will exhibit six new works by Lilla Tabasso.
