Ancient paintings, sculptures and drawings

Paintings, drawings and sculptures, made from the Middle Ages to the eighteenth century, have always been an object of interest for Viscontea Casa d’Aste.
The protagonists in particular are the paintings made on different media and with various artistic techniques, depicting historical, mythological and sacred scenes, as well as landscapes, portraits, still lifes, allegories and genre scenes.
Viscontea has in fact dealt with paintings from every era since its inception, and now boasts a great deal of experience in their evaluation and enhancement. To make the service offered to those who have works to offer even more complete, the Auction House also relies on external collaborators who, thanks to their studies, are specialized in specific periods.
Throughout its history, Visconti has seen works of great beauty pass by auction, such as important gold funds, an Adoration of the shepherds attributed to Jacopo dal Ponte known as Jacopo da Bassano and a View of the Campo dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo from the Bellotto workshop.
Among the works of European breadth presented in past auctions we remember a Crucifixion with the weeping Marys made by an exponent of the Flemish School of the sixteenth century, an Adoration of the shepherds by the hand of a member of the circle of Matthias Stomer and a beautiful still life attributed to Jean-Baptiste Belin de Fontenay the Younger.
Ancient sculptures made of various materials, such as marble, bronze, wood, majolica and silver, are also subject to evaluation.
