We are excited to announce our upcoming exhibit which will feature masterworks from the collection of international fine art dealer Jean Luc Baroni.  The exhibition will be held here at Carlton Hobbs and will run  from January 25th through February 1st, in conjunction with Old Master’s week in New York. Fra Bartolommeo,  Head of a Friar Wearing a Cowl. On display will be selection of paintings, drawings and sculptures by an impressive range of artists including Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Francois Boucher, Edgar Degas, Auguste Rodin, and Lucian Freud.   Baroni will also be exhibiting Jacopo Ligozzi’s grand Allegory of Virtue, an oil painting which towers at over eleven feet high and was commissioned by Francesco I De Medici. “What makes this exhibition especially exciting is that there are a number of long-unseen or newly rediscovered works—by Ligozzi and Reni, to name two—that have been either unrecorded or were thought to have been lost or destroyed long ago,” says Baroni. “In particular, I am proud to be unveiling a Fra Bartolommeo drawing that has not been before the public in nearly two centuries.” Jean Luc Baroni is a third generation art dealer who specializes in Old and Modern Masters. The family business first opened in 1919 in Paris, before moving to Florence in 1967. Baroni currently works with his daughter, Novella Baroni, out of their gallery in St. James’s London. Here at Carlton Hobbs, we are busy preparing for the spectacular works of art which will soon fill our gallery.  Along side these paintings, drawings and sculptures, we will have on view a selection of furniture from our collection.
