Australian photographer exhibits in Cortona
For those who fancy a trip out of Rome over the Easter period, Australian photographer Mary Anne Brophy is staging a new exhibition of photographs at Palazzo Ferretti in Cortona.
Entitled in viaggio, the exhibition's photographs were taken over the last three years in Venice, Florence, Rome, Catania and, of course, Cortona.
The show comprises works featuring famous monuments and sites such as the copy of Michelangelo’s David at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence; S. Giorgio Maggiore in Venice; the Spanish steps and Borghese Gardens in Rome; as well as vignettes of daily life in Italy.
Brophy provides a rich visual tour of Italy with her trademark impressionistic works printed on fine art paper, although her choice of images are far removed from the stereotypical "holiday snaps."
In addition to in viaggio, there is an exhibition entitled Etruscan Enchantment: From the Secrets of Holkham Hall to the Wonders of the British Museum, which focuses on Lord Coke and his travels through Italy in the 18th century, at the Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca e della Citta di Cortona, Palazzo Casali.
Brophy's exhibition is open daily from 11.00-19.00. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org or view website.
